Long Description:

Recently, Egg Harbor City, through the efforts of Peace Pilgrim Centennial Celebration Committee, celebrated her 100th birthday. From the site:

"Peace Pilgrim Centennial Birthday Committee of Egg Harbor City, New Jersey celebrated what would have been Peace Pilgrim's 100th birthday on July 18-19, 2008. Events included a showing of a documentary about Peace Pilgrim at the Charles L. Spragg School, the innaugural Peace Pilgrim 100, a 2-mile intergenerational walk for peace, and an old fashioned community picnic at Peace Pilgrim Park. The event ended with the formation of a human peace sign."

The park features a serpentine waterway. Check it out on Google Earth; it is pretty neat. There is also a memorial/explanation marker, a gazebo, several picnic benches, a peace pole, a butterfly garden, a really cool individual and hand-made tiled area on top of a cement platform upon which rests a statue of Peace Pilgrim and a lot of grass to walk around. The entire park is gated in by a fence.
