Information on Peace Park: Wikipedia, Seattle Parks, History Link.

Check out the opening paragraph from the History Link page:
Floyd Schmoe was a naturalist and a peace activist. He drove ambulances in World War I, was the first official naturalist at Mount Rainier National Park, gave up his position at the University of Washington during World War II to help interned Japanese Americans, built houses in Hiroshima for survivors of the atomic bombing, and created the Seattle Peace Park.
Wow.
