Peace Park

The Meeting maintains and oversees the Peace Park adjacent to the Meetinghouse.  As one vehicle for our outreach to the surrounding community, the Peace Park exists to be a place of play and safety for neighborhood children and their families.  In addition to its role as a playground it serves periodically, along with the Meetinghouse, as a site for a variety of community centered activities (homework help, family table, holiday picnics, etc.)  Park use is predicated on principles of non-violence, respect for others and personal responsibility.  Alcohol and drug use is prohibited.
