One of Seattle's many obscure, postage-stamp-sized parks, Viretta Park has become a landmark of sorts in recent years, thanks to association with the late Kurt Cobain, who died in the shingled house to the north of the park. Fans leave flowers and other offerings on the park benches. And Howard Schultz of Starbucks built a controversial mansion south of the park. He landscaped part of the park itself, but under neighborhood pressure, he changed it back.
I have visited from SC twice now (Oct. '08 & Apr. '09), and am grateful it is there. Wish there was better parking in the area. Weird that the park is so close to the road and public when Kurt was such a private person and lived so accessible to the world there.
