Join us in the effort to build an accessible space in which to inspire peace.
From Saturday, September 11th through Tuesday September 21st, we are planning a series of peaceful events. Concerts, meditations, dances, Tai Chi, Qigong, crane making lessons and more are included on the schedule. Full details are posted on our Events page.
Like many nonprofits, Friends of Peace Park Sheboygan was hit by the pandemic. Thanks to members and friends, we weathered 2020 and are looking forward to writing some grants and applying for donations from foundations and corporations.
As always, we appreciate all donations large and small. If you would like to make a donation, please click on the DONATE HERE button below.

THERE IS SPACE FOR YOUR PAVER BLOCK .
PHASE TWO -
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.
