(Gibson) Guitar great Jimi Hendrix will be honored next year when the Jimi Hendrix Memorial Park opens in his hometown of Seattle.

According to NME.com, the park will cover 2.5 acres and be in the shape of a guitar and feature "lyrical stepping stones, rain drums, a sculpted butterfly garden, performance area, sound garden and a green space" and a fretboard-shaped bridge.

The park has been financed by donations from Jimi's sister Janie Hendrix, the Parks and Green Spaces Opportunity Fund and the Neighborhood Matching Fund Award in Seattle. more on this story
