Peace Memorial Park was a largely forgotten space that Lloyd EcoDistrict – along with a diverse coalition of veterans, students, and community members – are transforming into a celebration of unity.

In 2019, we convened a group of residents and cross-sector stakeholders to revitalize the area with native, pollinator-friendly perennials. The more groups we engaged, the more the vision for the park expanded and flourished. The new, collaborative vision for Peace Memorial Park honors the complex intersections of social, racial, and climate justice in the Lloyd neighborhood, and makes needed active transportation and safety upgrades to promote development in the area.

In 2020, we completed the park’s schematic design phase, finalizing the plans for irrigation, lighting, native plant choices, signage, and cost estimates for park redesign and improvements. Committed staff and volunteers have worked diligently to ensure the park’s resilience and that the site is ready for the ambitious scope of this project. Grants, in-kind support, and donations of all sizes have allowed us to make the work-to-date possible, and are enabling us to plan for larger changes in the coming years.

Thank you to all the Friends of Peace Memorial Park who make this work possible!
