I visited the park with one of my girlfriend's and it was surreal to me. It's not a big park, so some might see it as a waste of time, but to me, just being here and seeing the guitar statue and wishkah river and...More

I went here with my twin babies and my 6 year old. My 6 year old loves Kurt but the place was very dangerous. Lots of needles. It was so muddy under the bridge. The air guitar was mediocre.

This is definitely worth a stop. My friend and I took a quick walk underneath the bridge too to see where Kurt Cobain wrote a couple of his songs. The area smells like urine and be careful under the bridge, there's a few things there...More
