Portland Memory Garden 21st Anniversary Celebration
Thursday, June 22, 2023, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM PDT
Category: Allied Organization Events

An interdisciplinary group of community and national leaders began planning the Portland Memory Garden in October 1998. Partners developed the garden as one of the 100-gardens to honor the 1999 centenary celebration of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). Major partners included the Center of Design for an Aging Society, ASLA, Alzheimer’s Association, Portland State University/School of Urban Studies & Planning, City of Portland Parks & Recreation and Legacy Health.

Due to COVID-19 precautions we were unable to hold our 20th celebration.

Please join Legacy Therapeutic Garden team members and other major partners on June 22, 2023, 11:30 – 1:00 at the garden to acknowledge the services this garden provides to the local community and for families supporting their loved ones living with dementia. Enjoy learning and engaging with tabling by partners, nature activities, reconnect with organizations and community members who supported the construction and continued garden maintenance and programming. Meet and engage with HTRs involved in the design, construction, maintenance, and programing of the garden.

Event held rain or shine with a warm welcome to all community members for this free event. Bring pictures, story telling and other memorabilia of our amazing community project. Bring your lunch and take a break in nature.

Meet at the Portland Memory Garden at Ed Benedict Park 10401 SE Bush St, Portland, OR 97266.
