Parks in Context

Inspired by the 2020 Black Lives Matter vigils and marches that began in Peninsula Park honoring George Floyd, the Friends of Peninsula Park Rose Garden reached out to Portland State University’s History Department hoping that our students could help tell a richer history of how the park has been a home to so many communities over the twentieth century. This zine is our attempt to tell the park’s story.
