If you love Nirvana and want to honor Kurt Cobain, this Memorial is a must see. Visiting his hometown really put some of his music, and his troubled life, in perspective. The Memorial is really in need of some vision and upkeep, but it seems...More

Nice little park memorial for Kurt. Unfortunately, the town junkies like to shoot up under the bridge kurt hung out at, so watch your step. Otherwise, a nice setting. Be respectful of the neighbors.

Just a little out of the way, but the perfect spot for this Cobain tribute. A nice place for a picnic when the weather allows, quiet and somewhat secluded.

Modest memorial park with a couple of statues. Near a bridge where he used to spend a lot of time. Would recommend visiting if you're in the area.
