Guitar Shaped Hendrix Park To Open In Seattle In 2012

New memorial planned for Hendrix's hometown

NME reports that the Jimi Hendrix Park will open some time next year, when the iconic guitarist would have turned 70.

The park will be shaped like a guitar and will contain "lyrical stepping stones, rain drums, a sculpted butterfly garden, performance area, sound garden and a green space" as well as a fretboard shaped bridge. 

The park is being funded by donations from Jimi's sister, Janie Hendrix, as well as money from the Parks and Green Spaces Opportunity Fund and the Neighborhood Matching Fund Award in Seattle.
