PEACE GARDEN AND GREENSPACE
A Space for Enjoyment and Reflection
The northeast corner of our campus, once a dormant spot, is now home to the peace garden. This was made possible by a committee of committed supporters who saw potential in an area that was not utilized. Together, they worked to design a beautiful space that could be utilized by program participants and Roxbury neighbors, and through hard work and determination, made it a reality.
Now, the space is open to enjoy, and you are welcome to visit for a stroll, sit with a coffee, and enjoy the plants, flowers, and one of the best views of the Boston skyline on this side of the Charles River.
Our gates are always open, and we hope you'll stop by and enjoy this beautiful and tranquil oasis in the Roxbury neighborhood.

Greenspace in the Heart of Roxbury
The greenspace plays host to many events throughout the year. In the summertime, the greenspace plays host to the world-class jazz of The Makanda Project. Recently, we invited partner organizations from the Roxbury-area to join us on the greenspace as part of UUUM's Community Open House. And oftentimes you will find these partner organizations hosting their own events on this beautiful space.
Our campus sits on 2 acres in the heart of Roxbury. In addition to the peace garden, our outdoor space consists of a large greenspace. This space was rerstored at the same time capital improvements were made to the exterior of the historic Meetinghouse.
