Today, Jimi Hendrix Park features an array of new improvements that reflect themes found in his music including: curved pathways that mimic a guitar in motion; song lyrics and historical timelines highlighting milestones in Jimi Hendrix’s life; butterfly gardens; a central performance space complete with covered canopy that allows rainwater to flow into the nearby rain garden and so much more.

Jimi Hendrix’s creative spirit was always being celebrated, which allowed the landscape architects, Murase Associates, to develop some key design concepts that would incorporate various elements into the final design.  Topics such as light & color; sound & music; words & lyrics; planting & sustainability; and art & imagery were always on the forefront.
