Jimi Hendrix Park Under Construction

(Classic Rock) Following three years of planning and a successful fundraising campaign, Jimi Hendrix is to have a park created in his honor in his hometown of Seattle.

The decision to transform the 2.5-acre site in the city's central district into a community focused music park has officially been given the green light, and work will now begin to create an area which will celebrate Hendrix's life and music.

Hendrix was born in the city in 1942 and his sister Janie, President and CEO of Experience Hendrix LLC, says the new park has special significance for the Hendrix family.

"Every project endorsed by our family bearing Jimi's name is meaningful to us, but this park holds special significance as Seattle will always be Jimi's home," she says. "This very area is where he grew up, where his dreams were cultivated and his creative energy awakened, so to see this amazing place of beauty dedicated to Jimi and his artistry blossom into reality is indescribably fulfilling." more on this story
