Welcome to peace plaza
Aspiring for true peace and tranquility and celebrating diversity and heritage, the Keeling-Puri Peace Plaza is located in Rockford, Illinois. It is easily accessible from I90 (Riverside Exit) west one-half mile to McFarland Road and south one quarter mile. The Peace Plaza is situated in a 2.5 acre park which also serves as a trailhead for Rockford’s 20 mile Perryville Path network of bicycle and recreational trails with an easy link to Rock Cut State Park located three miles north of the Peace Plaza.
Where Do We Find Peace?
“If we are to have real peace in the world, we must begin with the children.” Mahatma Gandhi. We look to the children of the greater Rockford region to inspire us all to participate fully in the quest for enduring world peace. The Keeling Puri Peace Plaza is dedicated to support the young leaders of the Rockford Region as they work to create sustainable change. Our children have partnered with organizations such as Pennies for Peace , World Bicycle Relief, Kids Around the World, New Global Citizens and UNICEF finding local solutions to global and local problems.
