The Pavilion at Sholom Park


The Hebrew word for "peace" is shalom. The meaning is quite broad, reflecting the kind of peace where all is in perfect order, where harmony rules among people and the creation. It can also be spelled "sholom."

Sholom was the word used by Sidney Colen when he built this park some years back. Sholom Park is a very peaceful place; a place to walk and meditate, a place where you can let the cares of the world wash away, a place that surrounds you with quiet and stillness and beauty.
