Peace Garden


Peace Garden review Rate it

Manchester became the world's first nuclear-free city, in 1980, at the height of world nuclear paranoia. Today, the world may be no safer and the garden isn't especially peaceful, bordered as it is by a busy bus route and tramline. Still, centred around the Messenger of Peace statue and sheltered by the Town Hall, it offers occasional lunchtime refuge for office workers - and pigeons.

I'm afraid your information is out of date. As of earlier this year the Peace Garden was completely flattened as part of a 're-generation' plan by Manchester City Council. There's not so much as a blade of grass left. Sometimes vandals come wearing suits...

This peace garden no longer exists. In the name of the MCC metrolink, it has been demolished to become a station. So saddened by this.
