Along the edge of the Macquarie River Bicentennial Park the Bathurst Peace Garden, is a monument to peace.

In 1956 the Indian Government donated 19 Teak seats for the original gardens. Inscribed with the words "Presented By The People Of India 1956" you can still find several of these seats in the Peace Garden and in the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre.

In 1988 the Peace Garden was re-dedicated by the Deputy High Commissioner of India C.M. Bhandari, where he presented a bust of India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

The brick walls of the Peace Garden are decorated with designs of local children. Today visitors can enjoy the peace park and learn about the friendship between Bathurst and the county of India.

Does not cater for people with access needs.
