“Jimi Hendrix Memorial Roadtrip”
Reviewed May 21, 2006

For those who are interested in Jimi Hendrix, this is a neat thing to go and see. Open from dawn to dusk 365 days a year, Greenwood Memorial Park at 350 Monroe St. NE. in Renton, Washington is the 2nd resting place of Jimi Hendrix. He was previoulsy moved moved from the graveyard Bruce Lee is buried in and now rests with his father, step-mother and grandmother in a large white structure you can see from the parkling lot. It's a short walk and has wheelchair access right up to the altar. The polished graite mosoleum has bench seating, which can get pretty wet and many places to leave flowers where the water collects. Even the most dedicated fans who bring music (low volume only due to groundskeepers) and leave such items as guitar picks, flowers and herb, will only need about an hour to complete their pilgrimage. Otherwise it's a 15 minute photo op at most.
