It is easily accessible from I90 (Riverside Exit) west one-half mile to McFarland Road and south one quarter mile.

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.
