Creating a “Be Kind” peace space at the Accessible Playground

In late 2021, the lastest community peace space opened to the public. The two Rotary Clubs in Peoria, Arizona, USA (Peoria, Peoria North) partnered with the City of Peoria to install three peace poles an a “be kind” bench (see photos below) within a newly designed accessible playground. Peace-related resources may be found at the link posted at the bottom of each of the peace poles – resources designed to move people to take positive steps towards more peaceful outcomes in their relationships. The $8,000 project was totally funded by donations from community members and their organizations.
