Portland Memory Garden
Portland Memory Garden, a non-profit organization started in 2001, is dedicated to sharing the beauty of nature with those who suffer from memory disorders as well as with their care-givers. It is a free, secure, community resource for respite, recreation, and inspiration, maintained predominately with assistance from about 30 volunteers. The Portland Memory Garden is one of only 2 public gardens in the U.S. designed specifically for people with memory-affecting diseases and for their loved ones. Located in Ed Benedict Park, this little jewel provides four seasons of safe, accessible, and botanically rich experience.
