About Viretta Park, Seattle

Trivia: Kurt Cobain used to live in the house just north of the park. It's 1.8 hectares in size. The most notable feature here are the park's benches, which are marked with graffiti dedicated to the late rockstar. Also, twice a year, on Cobain's birthday and his death day, his fans gather to pay him tribute. Other than this, and the fact that blackberries are ripe in the park in August, there is nothing remarkable about it. As wooded parks go, it's alright. People usually stop here while strolling along the Lake Washington Boulevard.

Viretta Park, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review

  • I went here of course, to see the house Kurt used to live in and the park he supposedly used to visit. It's a tiny little park, in an upper-middle class neighborhood. It is very relaxing and the Cobain bench is really neat.

  • Small park next door to Kurt Cobain's house. There are no official memorials, but several park benches have been turned into tributes to the man and the music. Very moving place. The perfect way to honor Kurt, and he would have liked it very much.

  • Really peaceful memorial to Kurt Cobain. As in the Aberdeen park, there are several groups of people coming from all over the world to remember Kurt in their own way. Bring an ink pen to write some lyrics on the bench, which has a direct view of the house he lived and died in (though it looks a lot different now). Overall, it's a nice place to sit and reflect and pay your own respects to a rock legend.

  • The beauty and the grunge feel of Seattle all wrapped up in one little park. Check out the beautiful Kurt Cobain house and put a flower or two (Maybe even a beer or cigarette) on his memorial bench. Turn around and take in the beauty of Seattle and the surrounding waters. Oh! And don't worry there's another bench that you can take a rest on.

  • Nice park across the street from the infamous former home of Kurt Cobain. Would have been 5 stars, but giving it 3 stars because of all of the naked dudes. No pictures available.
