    This is an outstanding memorial and tribute to a rock and roll legend, Jimi Hendrix. When you park in the memorial parking, you will walk towards your right and the memorial stands alone. The memorial contains numerous pictures of Jimi, as well as guitar tombstone. This is a good place to visit if you are a fan of Jimi Hendrix's music and his rock and roll legacy.

    So wonderful! A beautiful park! Such a relief to bring my adult son with Autism to a park and not have dogs running up to us or at us. Peaceful and lovely!

    We went to see the tribute to Jimi Hendrix. The cemetery is easy to find, and is located next to a McDonald's. It appeared to be very well cared for. A lot of nationalities were buried there, so it's very diverse. I really liked this one Asian gazebo that had running water near it near the Jimi Hendrix Memorial. That was very peaceful. The Jimi Hendrix Memorial is a focal point of the cemetery. It's a gazebo, has his signature engraved in it, a guitar, a self portrait etched in the stone, and some other stuff. There is a round about that goes completely around the memorial, so if you have mobility issues, or just wanted a photo opp you wouldn't even have to leave your car. It appears that it would be a good place to take a walk, or have as a final resting place.

    Very well maintained facility. Parking is a challenge when people don't know the rules. Back exit behind the community center is a bonus. Kids had fun and didn't want to leave.

    Small but interesting little museum. Only 5$ donation I think. Could be updated. More on American Indian history.

    Great for walking, great for picnicking. Incidentally, the Green River Trail passes right through it, which is absolutely perfect for biking, jogging, or a leisurely stroll. Has its own free parking and a couple of signs about local wildlife and history. Nothing complex about this place, just a great way to spend a bit of an afternoon.

    The park is large and clean, has its own parking, a ballfield, a playground, and a nice field. It's a great spot for a picnic or a place to bring kids. It's not immediately near much of anything, though, and that's the only thing it suffers from in my opinion.

    This place has only a few card tables available. It’s like a bar and restaurant but you can gamble. Right off a major street. Not far from Sea Tac airport which I walked from. Won a little bit playing pow GAO bought me a nice BBQ ribs dinner.. very cozy for being small.

    This happened on 29th of June 2020 around 9pm at table 9.
    While I was playing 1/3 I ordered chowfun seafood.
    The waitress brought me a SOUP? Not the stir fry chowfun seafood.
    I informed to the waitress that I didn't order the soup, it supposed be a stir fry chowfun seafood.
    She advised me that "this is Chowfun seafood"
    I told her that this is not the same one as last night.
    She advised me that she will bring a manager over.
    I waited about 15mins and table dealer called the manager for me since I was just waiting.
    MR.DAVID approached to me;

    DAVID: Well this is Chowfun seafood

    Me: I ordered chowfun seafood stir fry one. Last night when I ordered "chowfun seafood" it came stir fry chowfun seafood not the soup.

    DAVID: Well, you PROBABLY ordered different food or they misunderstood and ordered different food for you.

    Me: I ordered " chowfun seafood" do you have two different kinds of chowfun seafood? How come last night I got stir fry one and today I get soup kind?

    DAVID: THIS IS CHOWFUN SEAFOOD, YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS

    Me: I'm not paying for this something I didn't order.

    DAVID: YOU HAVE TO LEAVE NOW!!

    Me: Okay ( I picked up my eye glasses, phone, chips)
    When I stood up, MR.DAVID comes in my personal space he said" you gona walk away without paying for this???!!!!!"

    I told him that " you told me to leave so I'm leaving now" And he keep saying same stuff over and over again and followed me to cage,

    DAVID: YOU GONA WALKWAY WITHOUT PAYING FOR THIS!! YOU CAN NEVER COMEBACK UNLESS YOU PAY FOR THIS!!!
    He said that 4 times... that's verbal harassment.

    I thing this is just stupid..
    He told me to leave but I don't understand that why MR.DAVID keep approached to me and followed me??

    I believed in karma, but this is bad karma for you.

    The Renton School District offers public swim lessons. I enrolled my preschooler, who loves it. He's one of five 4-year olds to one instructor. The first day, the preschool instructors had an assistant instructor. The instructors I have observed are very attentive, supportive, and incredibly patient with the kids. I appreciate the extra lifeguards who hover over the pool. Also like how the parents/guardians must watch from the mezzanine instead of crowding the sides of the pool. My only complaint is the temp of the water -- it seems to be inconsistent and often on the colder side.

    We saw the play "To Kill a Mockingbird" at this theater recently. This production was incredibly well-done - we were impressed with the caliber of acting and wonderful emotional storytelling. The theater is located in an interesting area, with small businesses up and down the street, I believe it used to be an old movie house. The box-office is outdoors, so if there's a line, it snakes down the sidewalk, fine if the weather is decent ;-). The lobby is quaint, the concessions are well-priced and they have wine and beer. Its an old building with an old feel, but personally, I found it charming, except for the seats...some seemed OK, but they definitely could use an upgrade - my seat had lost its padding, and squeaked when I moved (I'm an average-sized person). The size of the house seems just right for a community theater, though not sold-out the day I went, the theater felt full and the energy from the audience seemed to feed the production in a positive way. I sat in the back and could hear very well - even though they didn't seem to use microphones for this show - I saw hanging mics above the stage, so I'm guessing they use them for their Musicals. Happy to now know about this theater, I will definitely return for another production. If you go, do not park at the lot nearest to the theater, it is owned by other nearby businesses and they tow :-( However, there is plenty of free street parking and one of our favorite Vegetarian restaurants, Blossom, just around the corner from the theater.

    This was my first time here and I would highly recommend coming
    here.

    This store located in downtown Renton has much to look at and many interesting items which you will want to examine further.
    There are many knickknacks and masks, weapons such as knives, appliances, furniture, signs, even some larger full wall pieces.

    The shopkeeper was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and engaged me in conversation about some of the pieces I was interested in even though she knew I was not going to buy most likely.

    The interior of the store was clean and the antiques had all been dusted.

    If you're expecting a monument, this is not the place. The memorial is a seaplane base which you cannot enter publicly, but instead just stand in the park next door. It's a nice, tiny park, and it's fun to stand and watch.

    Sunset Community Church is a "houseful" of open, friendly, and helpful people, "multi-generational, multi-ethnic", celebrating together their faith as Jesus wants them to do.
    They love God, each other and their community as demonstrated by what they do with them and how they live the gospels.
    All are welcomed cheerfully whether in the bistro or classes or worship. It was a joy to be there
