The “Monkey House” in McAlester Park

Peace Park also known as McAlester Arboretum (4 acres) is a park and arboretum located on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, Missouri, United States. It was renamed Peace Park after the Kent State Massacre, to which there is a memorial in the park. The park is near Francis Quadrangle and the Missouri School of Journalism. Across elm street is Downtown Columbia and the Columbia Missourian, Shakespeare's Pizza, and the State Historical Society of Missouri. Peace Park is popular with students, faculty, and Columbia residents alike.

The McAlester arboretum contains more than 100 trees of 43 varieties. Plans include adding several genera of trees and shrubs important to the Mid-Missouri region. Goose Creek runs through the park and eventually into Flat Branch of Hinkson Creek and ultimately to Perche Creek and the Missouri River. The campus has been designated the Mizzou Botanic Garden.
