I was really happy that we could visit the memorial to Jimi. It was a very peaceful and beautiful place. They did a very good job for a great musician!

This is a nice memorial to remember and honor the greatest guitar player, ever. It is a pretty simple stone memorial with some laser etchings of Jimi's photos and some hand writings. The reproduction of the page with the original "Woodoo child" is there. Girls and ladies kiss the photos on the walls and leave their lips imprint on the... More

This is a nice tribute site. Be forewarned, you'll run into some people on the strange side here. With the legalization of marijuana, it doesn't seem like ti would be a s big a deal to come by here and be stoned, but it still is. The staff takes great care to keep this clean and clear and are good... More

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...
