Seattle has about 400 parks, and you know what? We don't complain when they open more. We love parks. And it's especially cool that this park, Seattle's newest, bears the name of Jimi Hendrix. Seriously, before this, the guy only had a squirreled-away bust, a plaque, and a privately funded statue in his home city. Come for the ribbon-cutting and hours of wonderful music from Grace Love, Ayron Jones, Henry Cooper, Peace & Red Velvet, the Hollers, Michael Wansley, and School of Rock, plus representatives of Youth Speaks, the Northwest African American Museum, and other speakers. There'll also be food trucks, family activities, and more.
