Jimi Hendrix Park To Break Ground Next Month

. (The Blues) Building work on a public park in Seattle, Washington devoted to the memory of Jimi Hendrix will begin next month, says the foundation behind the plans.

Approval was granted by local authorities in Seattle last year. Now the construction contrast has been awarded and the job is expected to be completed in the autumn.

Hendrix's sister Janie, who looks after his catalogue and is director of the park foundation, says: "This is the culmination of years of hard work, creative input and generosity.

"It's our hope that, for generations, it will exist as more than just a point of interest, but a place of homage to one of Seattle's own. The landscaping, the design and the ambience will all mimic the persona of Jimi." Read more here.
