Attraction details
Reviewed April 15, 2014

If your a kurt Cobain fan or Nirvana fan. This is a must-see place to come if your in Seattle, WA. You'll have a great view of his house and park. There's also a bench where you can sit and write on in memory of Kurt. The view of Lake Washington whilst sitting there or simply walking around the small park is simply breath-taking! A must see for any fan! The neighbourhood is nice and peaceful too. I can see why he choose to live here!

Visited here since huge Nirvana fan and wanted to see the Kurt Cobain House. The park is very small and adjacent to the house is a bench which has now been dedicated as a memorial. It was extremely peaceful and nice just to sit down and take it all in.....

Neighborhood is beautiful and offers excellent views of Lake Washington.

Easy to get to take the #2 Bus to Madrona Park place and then walk 5 mins to the park.

If you blink you will miss this park. Its in a beautiful neighborhood and has a nice view but calling it a part is a little much. This is really just a grassy opening with two benches covered in graffiti. he graffiti is all in tribute to Nirvana's lead singer Kurt Cobain, the house he dies in is next door to this 'park'. If you're a a Nirvana fan then this is a good spot to go but there isn't much and you'll only probably be there for about five minutes.
