Join us in the effort to build an accessible space in which to inspire peace.
We are happy to announce that we met the goal for Tier 1 groups in the crowd-sourced fundraising phase of our recent campaign. The next phase involves grants from the Gannett Foundation and will expect to hear about that in early December.
Meanwhile, you can still donate through MightyCause.com. This platform not only offers a safe and secure website for making donations. Please check out our page at MightyCause.com for full details of our next goal for Sheboygan Peace Park.

THERE IS SPACE FOR YOUR PAVER BLOCK . ORDERS PLACED OVER THE WINTER WILL BE INSTALLED IN THE SPRING OF 2020.
PHASE TWO - BEGINNING IN 2021
THE PATH WILL BE EXTENDED SOUTH ALONG 3RD STREET AND WILL INCLUDE A PATIO WITH A SEAT WALL FACING LAKE MICHIGAN.
This image shows a view of the Park from the south looking toward N. 3rd St. It shows the extension of the path, the viewing patio and seat wall and the new planting area.
We are working with MightyCause.com - a crowd-sourced funding platform - to gather donations to help us get this next phase underway. We hope to be able to begin in the spring of 2021.

The northeast corner of the Park is now the home of the Sister Cities Peace Gardens. Three gardens, one each in honor of Esslingen, Germany, Tsubame, Japan and Sheboygan
The gardens include plants that are either grown in those cities or are representative of them. Plants in the Esslingen garden include daisies, brunnera and Edelweiss while plants in the Tsubame garden will include hosta, pink asters, purple iris and a Japanese red maple tree.
