Just a few short blocks from the hustle and bustle of the city is a quiet respite with tall shady trees and numerous benches to rest the weary traveler.

The International Peace Gardens, dedicated in 1947, was dreamed up as a way to foster peace and friendship among the international community making up the Salt Lake area. About 26 countries are represented by flags, garden plots, statues and buildings.

There is a miniature replica of the Eiffle Tower, the Matterhorn, a pagoda (with seating inside), a wysteria arbor, bronze sculptures, numerous plaques and dozens of well-tended garden plots.

In days gone by, there were numerous ponds complete with fish. But today those ponds are not maintained (with water) and most of them have been planted with beautiful flowers and grasses.

This is a wonderful place for both a family gathering (weddings take place here occasionally) as well as an opportunity for some quiet time. Find a bench in a shady corner and contemplate life's mysteries.
