All the time you are in the peace park you will hear the bell being rung, but do not hit it hard as the sound travels a long way

Visited the park & made the short distance to the Peace Bell. A few people were queuing up to ring it in memory of those who had passed, but primarily for the photo opportunity it presented.

The place has a real solemn feel to it. The place has so much historical significance and you can really feel it

We watched a ceremony that was being conducted with local students... they rang the bell after laying a wreath. The various memorials are not far apart, it's an easy stroll. A moving place to visit.

You can use the bell and call for peace and a world without nuclear weapons. Use it and listen to the sound.

A simple idea for a an interactive memorial. The bell has the world map without borders etched on it. People can ring the bell as they approach.

There is a world map without borders carves into the bell. The world map symbolizes "one world". You can dong the bell by hitting a major horizontal bar alongside the back of the bell. Like everything else in the park, it's aim is to bring...More
