The Toowoomba Peace Garden was established in 1987 as an initiative of the local Bahá'í Community. It was a joint project of the Bahá'í Community and the Toowoomba City Council. The Bahá'ís provided the design and half the funding whilst the City Council provided the site, construction, and ongoing care and maintenance.
The garden is situated in East Creek Park, very close to the Mothers' Memorial, and consists of 9 pathways converging on a centrally located oak tree. At the entrance to each pathway is an archway. Native shrubs fill the remainder of the ground. Around the base of the oak tree are benches and two granite rocks with the following inscriptions on brass plaques:
MANKIND IS ONE
Ye are the fruits of on tree and the leaves of one branch
The Earth is but one country and mankind its citizens.
Yet so it shall be; these fruitless strifes, these ruinous wars shall pass away
and the 'Most Great Peace' shall come.
This garden was built and dedicated to World Peace
by the Toowoomba City Council and
the Baha'i Community of Toowoomba
