This is a beautiful memorial to Jimi Hendrix. Pictures, lyrics and memories. Very nice and calm place. Easy to park too.

This shrine is the largest at this park; Located about 25 minutes from where Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee are buried if you are grave site hopping. One notable thing is that when you first look at the laser etched images of Jimi...you see what appears to be a red film/smudges on them---as you peer closer, you see that the... More

This was a surprisingly moving visit for a shrine located only about 100 feet from a McDonalds! While it is in a cemetery, it's more on the outer edge so it feels more like a standalone area. The structure is absolutely beautiful marble, carved with images of Jimi. There are also song lyrics chiselled perfectly into the grey hardness, captured... More

Jimi is a local rock god.This modest yet tasteful tribute memorializes Jimi and his family. Pro tip - feel free to bring flowers or other decorous memorial items. Just keep it clean and respectful people.

It was a spectacular grave, but nothing more than that. Renton's a fairly long trip from downtown Seattle or Bellevue, so unless it's on the way, wouldn't rush. It was kind of cool to be be able to say I visited it, however.

We visited to pay our respects on the way from the airport to our hotel - it's maybe a 10 minute detour off the route to downtown Seattle The day we were there, there was a gentleman with a boom box playing Jimi's music, flowers all over the memorial, fans switching out old flowers for new, and visitors paying their...

Located in the Renton Highlands, this is easy to get to and well maintained. For the music buff or those who want to check it off their rock n roll grave tour, this is worth the respectful stop. Don't mind the Purple Haze.........

Jimi's grave site is a work of art that suits the icon resting there and his family. The cemetery itself is a beautiful setting with easy access to the Hendrix grave site that doesn't intrude on others visiting their loved ones. The grave site is sprinkled with personal messages from fans and lipstick kisses to remind you that this guy... More

Despite the bad weather that day, our group was able to visit and pay respects to Jimi Hendrix, a rocker who tragically died in his prime. The memorial was wonderful, and there are plenty of people that left their own tribute in memory of Jimi Hendrix, including flowers, guitar picks, hand written notes, and one person poured some alcohol on...

That is quite the shrine for Jimi. I'm not a huge fan but the guy had talent. The site was nice. Worth seeing.
