Lloyd, Peace Memorial Park, and Eastbank Esplanade (north) area Cleanup
Join Lloyd EcoDistrict and SOLVE volunteers to clean up Peace Memorial Park and the surrounding areas (Eastbank Esplanade/Duckworth Dock, Moda Center, Oregon Convention Center and beyond). The clean-up event will include trash pick-up, sprucing up Peace Memorial Park, raking up leaves on the sidewalks, removing graffiti around the area, and repainting park walls that are heavily tagged.
We’ll have free coffee on hand from Tall Tree Coffee (they partner with leading reforestation projects to plant trees for every purchase) and we’ll be providing lunch for volunteers, too.
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.
