As an avid Nirvana fan I spent a few hours touring around this very interesting city and most of the sites linked to Kurt Cobain and the beginning of Nirvana. His childhood home, the Young Street bridge/memorial park and even the Aberdeen 'Come As You...More

If you love Nirvana and want to honor Kurt Cobain, this Memorial is a must see. Visiting his hometown really put some of his music, and his troubled life, in perspective. The Memorial is really in need of some vision and upkeep, but it seems...More

GPS directions to 1311 E 2nd street Aberdeen, WA and it will get you right to the dead end where you can park. Would be of interest mainly to fans of Kurt or Nirvana. You can look at the muddy banks of the Wishkah River...More

Nice little park memorial for Kurt. Unfortunately, the town junkies like to shoot up under the bridge kurt hung out at, so watch your step. Otherwise, a nice setting. Be respectful of the neighbors.

Just a little out of the way, but the perfect spot for this Cobain tribute. A nice place for a picnic when the weather allows, quiet and somewhat secluded.

Modest memorial park with a couple of statues. Near a bridge where he used to spend a lot of time. Would recommend visiting if you're in the area.

This park is a classic Aberdeen effort. Visiting this "memorial" does give you some greater understanding of why Kurt Cobain got to be the way he was. but it also serves as a sort of monument to the ways that institutions like Chambers of Commerce...More
