Plaque dedicated to Johanna Sigmund in Chestnut Hill, PA

A new International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT) Peace Park – the Chestnut Hill Peace Park — was dedicated this week in Philadelphia. The park is meant to be a calm place to meditate and find peace amidst the chaos of the city.

One of the new park’s main features is a plaque in memory of Johanna Sigmund, who was murdered in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Johanna’s father, John, introduced peace parks to Philadelphia.

There are currently some 450 IIPT Peace Parks located throughout the world.

The Chestnut Hill Peace Park can be found at Germantown Avenue and Mermaid Lane in Philadelphia, reports Chestnut Hill Local.
