Peace Memorial Peace Park Pollinator Garden Event Recap


What a Difference a Day Makes

On May 18th from 9 am – 1 pm, roughly 30 volunteers from Veterans for Peace Chapter 72, Wells Fargo, Go Lloyd, Koch Landscape Architecture, and community members from right here in the Lloyd gathered to help clean up Peace Memorial Park in preparation for Memorial Day. As you can see above the results were amazing! Thanks to everyone’s efforts we were able to clear over 80 bags of weeds and overgrowth and redefined the peace sign in the heart of the site.

While the park looks much better, this is just phase one of a multi-phase project that will include another refresh in July, and a community informed redesign of the peace symbol and immediate area.

Intersection Mural Repainting

Help us bring this beautiful intersection painting back to life!

It has been almost two years since we first painted this colorful and vibrant mural on NE 2nd Ave and Clackamas St. As anyone who has passed by the location knows, it is in need of a serious touch-up.

Well, worry not! On July 13th and 14th we will be working with muralists Rather Severe, nonprofit Color Outside the Lines, and you to repaint the Happiness Vortex! We would love to have you stop by and be a part of this wonderful placemaking project in Lloyd! Contact Brian at brian@ecolloyd.org if you are interested in participating in this wonderful event.

Peace Memorial Park Partner Highlight

Veterans For Peace Chapter 72

Our efforts to give Peace Memorial Park a makeover will be ongoing throughout the summer. We will be highlighting some of our partners in this effort and the first partner we will be highlighting is Veterans For Peace Chapter 72 (VFP).

Veterans For Peace (VFP) is an international organization with a local Portland chapter. VFP membership is open to all military veterans as well as non-veteran family members and supporters, and includes veterans of wars spanning from World War II to present-day wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Understanding the true nature of war, its causes and costs, VFP is dedicated to the abolishment of war, and it was with that in mind that they created the Peace Memorial Park in 2006 to honor the victims of all wars, both military and civilian. Their message of peace and advocacy for world peace and a way of being that respects all life on the plant aligns well with our values as an ecodistrict, and partnering with VFP to help maintain and redesign Peace Memorial Park was a perfect match.

Veterans For Peace Portland Chapter 72 has been a leading partner in the Peace Memorial Park cleanup effort. Lloyd EcoDistrict Executive Director, Sarah Heinicke first learned of Veterans For Peace after member Becky Luening presented the Peace Memorial Park at a Go Lloyd pedestrian committee meeting. Several years later Lloyd EcoDistrict noticed that the park was in a bit of disrepair and thought it would be a great opportunity to partner with VFP to clean up and redesign the space to include native perennial plants that attract pollinator species. Becky was happy to have Lloyd EcoDistrict partner with VFP on Peace Memorial Park cleanup efforts, as well as to help lead on eventual redesign efforts. It is an important site for VFP, and Lloyd EcoDistrict is extremely honored and excited to make it a place that stands out in the Lloyd neighborhood and provides an open space for cyclists and pedestrians near the Eastbank Esplanade.
