After more than three years of planning and fundraising, ground was broken last month for a park named in honor of Jimi Hendrix. The occasion was marked with a program at the 2.5-acre site adjacent to the Northwest African American Museum, in Seattle’s Central District.
Donors have included Hard Rock International, Fender Musical Instruments, King Conservation District, KISW Radio, Northwest African American Museum, Nisqually Indian Tribe, Seattle Parks Foundation, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, Parks and Green Spaces Levy Committee, and numerous private donors.
Contributions to the Foundation, a 501c3 non profit, are tax-deductible. To learn more, visit www.jimihendrixparkfoundation.org.
