St Columb’s Park House opened as a peace and reconciliation centre in 1994 offering a shared space for learning, leadership and peaceful activism. Our mission is to be the heart of the park, supporting local people to be changemakers, peacebuilders and active citizens within our community.
Through the charity, (St Columb’s Park Reconciliation Trust), we facilitate a range of projects that encourage and support communities and individuals to work together towards a fair, peaceful society where every individual feels valued and can make a positive difference. People involved in our projects come from all walks of life and inspire us to have hope and to keep working together for peace and justice on a personal, local and regional level.
The location of St Columb’s Park House in the heart of a park that is steeped in our natural and built heritage is ideal for reflection, connecting with others and to our shared green space. This important park is a breathing space, the 'lungs' of the city and is accessible to everyone.
5 minutes from the iconic Peace bridge, St Columbs park House has an accessible cafe, public toilets, conference rooms, group residential accomodation and parking. The grounds of the house include a walled garden complete with covered outdoor space for groups and individuals to use, an amphitheatre area perfect for community arts performance and a reflective garden complete with wishing tree and garden of angels.
This is a place to relax, interact, discover and refresh perspectives.
