Discover Peace

Family Friendly,  Free

Join us at the Peace Grove to remember Nelson's desire to promote Peace. The Mayor and members of Nelson's Peace movement will introduce the stories behind the new colourful history panels installed as part of Heritage Week.

Nelson City became nuclear free in 1983, and other areas followed, leading to New Zealand becoming recognised for its nuclear free stance.

Murals painted by school children at the time feature on the panel.

Come with friends and family and bring your picnic, and fly your kite with messages of peace made at our free kite workshops or bring your white poppies. Sing a few songs made famous in the 1970s.

Park at Miyazu Gardens car park and walk through to the open area behind the garden closer to State Highway 6. If you are on your bike, or walking from the city, follow the Trafalgar Cycleway and turn at the pathway by Newman Grove.
If raining a gathering will be held at Founders Heritage Park.
