The Peace Park and Gardens: Proposal of Vision & Atmosphere

The vision for the Sheboygan Peace Park as a local destination will embrace a global perspective.  The established Peace Pole with it 16 dialects of "peace" will have a complementing sculpture garden placed in the center of the green space.  The park space green slopes eastward, and thus, the Lake view creates a grand vista.  With the participation of Sheboygan's sister cities from Germany and Japan, this localized theme of peace will share a tri-unified expression of global peace in sculpture.  The ground design will perhaps include an arching walkway from the sculpture, and that expanse will reach out to the eastern two corners of the park triangle.  A third walkway will provide an approach and viewpoint of the sculpture garden from the Peace Pole at the upper west corner.  These constructed elements will be beautified by the creation of flora beds that gird the Peace Pole and sculpture foundation with its integral walkways.  Benches and hard-scape will provide areas of rest or meeting in the shade of trees and in locations with the best views.

The atmosphere will seek to promote a seat of reverence to the cultivation of a peaceful nature in mind, body, and spirit.  The design reflects this as a way to honor the life of this garden park in a local geography that is interconnected with the global community.  That geography celebrates the glory of the Lake as a natural resource, which is essential to the wellness of the biota.  This shared setting serves, and is served, as a vessel of awareness, contemplation, and the advancement of a peaceful world.   -Bob Fleming

If this in any way catches your interest, would you like to help with the planning and implementation??  Are you an idea person?  An organizer?  Like to see your ideas to completion?  We are looking for qualified leaders to be on the Sheboygan Peace Park Core Planning Committee.  Our Peace Luncheon rollout and conversation starter was Dec 18th 2016 at Jake's Cafe.  Our goals for the event?

Starting in January 2016, this might involve two hours a month in skilled communication.  We want to build a local destination that will embrace a global perspective.   Is it you?  If so, please give us a call or an email.  If you're a fit, we'd like you in our circle for concept and design, assisting with fundraising, and overseeing construction.

If you would like a perspective on the space itself, check out our super-prelim video of the site.  Or now we also offer a video to help your creative inspiration and imagination related to sculptural art in our space, check it out here.  More video to follow as the plans evolve!

Or- we have a mailing list; if you'd like to be kept aware of our process, evolution, path, and success with the Peace Park.  As we reach major milestones, they'll be posted, would you like to be on that list?  Contact info for you:  (we won't sell or give away your info!).

Name:  A form here the next few days, thanks for your patience!!
