Peace Park Memorial Benches

On May 23, 2014, a seriously deranged young man murdered six students in Isla Vista. As a memorial, six unique, metal benches were made and placed in Peace Park. 

To mark two years since the tragedy, we were asked to light up the benches and the park. Bags containing blue tea lights were added by IV Recreation and Parks District.
