Intersection of Routes 5 & 98
Batavia, NY 14020
Nestled in Paolo Busti Park adjacent to the Holland Land Office Museum along the Tonawanda Creek, you’ll discover Batavia’s Honorary International Peace Garden. Batavia’s garden offers flowing pathways lined with benches, a globe, and a mill stone to signify the use of water for development of the land. This historical element represents the mills that supplied the new settlers with a necessary staple-flour. Today, flowers of another sort fill the garden with fragrance. The colorful flags snap in the wind above your head, reminding visitors of the more than 20 nations honored by the International Peace Garden Foundation. Not only does the garden strive to create an awareness of the dedicated people promoting peace throughout the world, but it is hoped that the spot brings you a moment of peace while driving by or strolling along the path.
The garden is maintained by the Friends of the Batavia Peace Garden volunteers, local Master Gardeners, the United Way Day of Caring and the Genesee County Parks Department. Additional information is available at www.bataviapeacegarden.com or by contacting 585-201-7100.
