About

Jimi Hendrix Park is located next to the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle's vibrant Central District, a thriving multi-cultural community near where Jimi Hendrix grew up.

The park features a grand entrance and stairway adorned with Jimi's signature at the corner of Massachusetts and 25th Avenue South. Phase 1 of the park development is designated Little Wing, and was completed in fall of 2016. It includes the new stairway and entrance at the southeast corner of the park, paved pathways, a chronological timeline of Jimi's life and career, enhanced landscaping with trees and native plantings, seatwall benches, ADA accessible walkways, rainwater infiltration gardens and a butterfly garden. The improvements to Jimi Hendrix Park create a welcoming green space and provides an experience that clearly defines its namesake. Phase 2 which includes a colorful central shelter was completed in June 2017. The link below will take you to the project page with information about the Phase 3 Shadow Wave Wall.
