Phase I, Phase II and Phase III

Phase I – 2010

Start of the Friends of the Batavia Peace Garden development as shown here, knowing this garden would only hold 20-22 IPG county flag members.

Phase 1

Phase II

Has been designed and developed upon tentative approval by the Genesee County Legislature, realizing that Phase I would be filled, Phase II would be created to go with the original design as countries are added to the International Peace Garden Memory Walk and new country flags will be place in this Memory Garden.

Phase 2

Phase III

With the Installation of the Genesee County Ellicott Trail, this Phase III will connect to the Ellicott Trail through the Peace Garden on Main Street which will create more accessible to the trail and garden. The Ellicott Trail runs from Pearl Street to Seven Springs Road.
