Long Description:
The surrounding landscape design, ‘Many Paths to Peace,’ greatly increases the interactive applications of the monument. Its winding path and stepping-stones lend themselves to the playful pace of children in the park or to contemplative walking. The design also includes three trees designated as Freedom Trees.

GAPP (Greater Anderson Promotes Peace)members and supporters envision the peace pole sculpture and surrounding site to be a place for celebration. These celebrations may include multicultural festivals of art, storytelling, music and food.

GAPP, a local not-for-profit organization, which serves the Greater Anderson area, provides community-building activities and programs that honor diversity and promote inclusion. Their Peace Pole Project issued a Call to Artists in 2000. Through popular ballot, our community chose a proposal by Anderson artist, Joel Selmeier.

The GAPP Peace Pole Project took shape September, 2005. There are 12 different translations of “May Peace Prevail on Earth” inscribed on six stone monoliths surrounding a smooth 9-ft. granite pole.
