Kurt Cobain Bench

It has been a long time since I did a Seattle specific post. Earlier this summer on one of my urban hikes, I made my first stop to the Kurt Cobain bench. How this landmark escaped me until recently is a mystery. I must have walked past this little park twenty times. Vieretta Park is right next to the house that Kurt was living in when he killed himself. This is very beautiful neighborhood in the Denny-Blaine section of Seattle, which is south of Madison along Lake Washington.

Nirvana fans have converted the park bench into a makeshift memorial. I took some photos.

  1. Reminds me a bit of Jim Morrison’s grave in Paris.

  2. @Jim – I was thinking the same thing. I haven’t been to France, but have seen the Morrison grave photos before.
