ROSE GARDEN 2018-03-12T18:34:54+00:00


A 102- Acre Mixed-Use Master Planned Community by Grupe Commercial Company on Magnolia and California Streets.

The University Park World Peace Rose Garden project started in January 2015 with the potting of 250 bare roots at Kevin and Sandy Huber’s barn, which were then transferred to the Rose Garden. The UPWPRG officially opened in May 2015. The current outline includes 13 planters, which represent rays of the sun.

The UPWPRG is part of the International World Peace Rose Gardens organization, founded by TJ David and Sylvia Villalobos. Through the International World Peace Rose Gardens, we participate in the “Peace Begins with Me” contest in the public school system, along with other students from around the world. Winning messages of peace are printed on plaques in the rose garden to inspire and encourage visitors.

The UPWPRG is sister affiliated to the Martin Luther King, Jr. “I Have A Dream” World Peace Garden located in Atlanta, GA with the same message, “Peace through Nonviolence.”

Come stroll, relax, think, pray, dream, and be inspired at the University Park World Peace Rose Garden, and be sure to leave your message of peace in our peace box located at the garden!
