Inspired by the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix, the park, named in his honor, will beautify Seattle, motivate youth and others to achieve in music and art, and strengthen the cultural pulse of the Emerald City, Jimi Hendrix’s hometown. Nestled adjacent to the Northwest African American Museum [NAAM] and grounds of the former Colman School, Jimi Hendrix Park will be a primary focal point for multi-cultural events, gatherings, and activities for the community.
The Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation’s vision is to create a community space inspired by the electrifying music and story of Jimi Hendrix. To create a gathering place for individuals of diverse backgrounds and ages to celebrate cultural heritage, experience community pride, and enjoy innovative educational programming. The Foundation’s mission is to raise funds to support the development of Jimi Hendrix Park; coordinate the design process; organize innovative and inspiring programming; ensure community goals are met; and support long-term maintenance of Jimi Hendrix Park.
