Peace Memorial Park / Lloyd Cleanup

Join Lloyd EcoDistrict and SOLVE volunteers to clean up Peace Memorial Park and the surrounding areas (Eastbank Esplanade/Duckworth Dock). The clean-up event will include trash pick-up, sprucing up Peace Memorial Park, and removing graffiti around the area.

About Peace Memorial Park: Connected to the Eastbank Esplanade, intersected by one of Portland’s busiest bikeways, and graced with expansive views of the Willamette River and the downtown skyline, Peace Memorial Park was established as a public place to honor victims of war, both military and civilian. Since Lloyd EcoDistrict joined in partnership with Veterans for Peace, the vision of the space has expanded to honor the intersection of conflict, climate and social justice.
