Friends of the Parks

If you would like to donate to the Peace Cross, please click the "Restore Peace Cross" button on the right!

The Peace Cross memorial was constructed in 1919 in honor of World War 1 servicemen who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Over the years, the monument has fallen into disrepair and is in need of maintenance. Help us restore this historic landmark and give to a noble cause by donating to the Peace Cross today. Every donation will go directly towards the memorial’s restoration.

For more information, view our press release.

The Friends of the Parks program will launch in 2021, stay tuned for more information!
