Many people don't know that Jimi was from the small city of Renton, WA...in fact even though I live here, I didn't know that for many years. It is a small stone with a guitar etched into it and lies next to his grandmother's. I had expected it to be something elaborate, but no, just a simple marking and reminder... More

It's a cool monument to visit. The purple flowers all around it are a nice touch. No one else there when we visited, early morning during the week.

I don't go by there very often, but each time I do a find a guitar pick, or the remains of a 'funny' cigarette, and occasionally some poetry left behind. Worth a visit for anyone who remembers Jimmy.

This was a really nice memorial dedicated to Jimi. If you are a fan, there's no harm in stopping by.

Beautiful, moving memorial usually features some touching messages from fans and mourners alike. Setting is very peaceful, yet accessible to I-405.

Great spot to take people when they visit! Plus the other grave sites are super interesting to see and walk around.

Beautiful memorial, and worth every second of the trip. We will be making a return trip in a few days to pay our respects once more to the great musician/human being that was Jimi Hendrix.

I went to see this site for a second time. I would not call it a site, more of a peaceful remembrance. If you want to pay tribute to Jimmy Hendrix this is the place. It is very easy to find and no one was around during the weekday when I went.

My wife and I just stopped in to see the memorial. It has been updated from what I hear. The grave has s large tome that you can see and sit in. There were a few teens there listening to his music and smoking some weed. Which I believe Jim would not have minded.
