Garfield Memorial Park

The Garfield Peace Garden was planted at Garfield High School. The garden was created as a symbol to promote peace in the neighborhood. The project was the idea of Garfield High School students that previously participated in the Seattle Center's Peace Academy Program. Garfield High School students and staff, Seattle Center Staff, the community and CADA completed this garden in 1998.

Garfield has been the neighborhood's public high school since 1923. The school's 8.9 acres are located along the corner of 23rd Ave. S and E. Cherry St. The garden replaced a patch of school property that was abundant with weeds.

Through the years, students at Garfield High School continue to maintain and expand the peace garden. Garfield High School is currently closed for remodel. The Garfield Peace Garden will continue to be a part of the new Garfield High School.
