In 2014, Grupe Commercial Company partnered with The International World Peace Rose Gardens to bring the first World Peace Rose Garden to San Joaquin County in University Park, Historic Magnolia District, Stockton, CA. The University Park World Peace Rose Garden opened on May 26, 2016. With a message of “Peace Through Nonviolence”, the local garden is one of a series of nine gardens planted in some of the most cultural, historical, and sacred grounds throughout the world. The UPWPRG is sister garden to the Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have A Dream” World Peace Rose Garden in Atlanta, Georgia. The two gardens share the theme of “Peace Through Nonviolence”.
