Hiroshima Peace Tree

Between 2019 and 2024, forty Oregon communities, including the City of Creswell, planted a Hiroshima Peace Tree from Japan. These trees are grown from the seeds of trees that miraculously survived the bombing of Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945. Oregon currently has the largest collection of Hiroshima Peace Trees of any state or nation outside of Japan.

You can visit Creswell's Peace Tree at the 2nd Street Park behind New Hope Baptist Church.

National Night Out

National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. The City of Creswell partners with the Lane County Sheriff's Office to plan and host National Night Out each year.

National Night Out features an abundance of exciting activities, such as information booths, K-9 dog demonstrations, a dunk tank, and so much more!

Movies in the Park

Each year, the City of Creswell hosts Movies in the Park, a series of four movie events that take place at Harry Holt Memorial Park. Starting in 2023, the movies have been put to a vote, with members of the public casting their vote for their preferred movie. The movies with the most votes are later shown in the summer.
