The Peace Bell is just across the river from the Atomic Bomb dome. Easy walk over 1 of 2 available bridges. Take a moment to go here, say a prayer and ring this bell. You'll be happy you did.

My daughter and I rang the peace bell together. I encourage everyone to ring it. It's a very deep and big sound. After we left we could hear others ringing it as we walked to other sites throughout Peace Park.

The sounding of the bell rang through me deeply every time someone chimed it. Though symbolic, the sound made me hope more and more for change. It really added to the experience and scenic value of the park.

Excellent spot to grab 20-30 'action shots' with the kids as they ring the bell over and over and over and over while shouting and covering everything with chocolate. At least, that's what I assume this is for based on what was happening during our 2 hours in the park.

A really lovely well done feauture of the park. Very emotional for us. We all rang it once. The Bell was an impressive work of art itself.

This is an attractive monument, but when we visited it was chained so that it could not be sounded. Kind of defeats the purpose. Worth seeing if you are in the park.

Really emotional to watch people ring this bell, say a prayer and then do it yourself. There is a plaque on the bell to tell you exactly how to solemnly ring it.
