Situated in West Salt Lake, the International Peace Gardens in the Jordan Park represent unity and brotherhood among diverse nations and people. Twenty eight nations are featured in the gardens with statues and beautiful floral displays.
A world torn apart by the Second World War found healing when the Salt Lake Council of Women, veterans, and multiple national groups came together to build the Peace Gardens. Today, visitors from all over the globe come to Salt Lake City to visit the Peace Gardens and experience its sense of brotherhood and hope for the nations of the world.
As part of our Claim It! conversation, we invite you to share your stories and experiences with the Gardens. Bring in your photos, short films, poetry, and art. We also invite you to come in for our West Side Storytelling Project where we record your history as it relates to the West Salt Lake community.
The Sorenson Unity Center is creating a Storytelling booth for you to come in and record your stories. Tell us what makes West Salt Lake yours. Starting October 14th you can share your story about West Salt Lake.
