Located on South Bass Island in Lake Erie, this memorial was built in honor of Commodore Oliver H. Perry’s victory against the British during the War of 1812. It now stands as a reminder of the international peace between the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.
This project consists of design of a peace garden and visitor entry nodes linking ferry drop-off locations to the new peace garden and the Park’s Visitor Center. At the ferry drop-off locations, entry nodes will welcome and orient visitors. The peace garden will accommodate programs appropriately held off the memorial grounds. Scope of services includes schematic design, design development and optional construction documents. Design will be consistent and coordinated with the 2018 PEVI Cultural Landscape Treatment Plan and Environmental Assessment the 2019 PEVI Park Accessibility Management Plan, the Long-Range Interpretation Plan, and ongoing line-item construction projects to repair the seawalls and plazas associated with the designed landscape.
