This is a picture of the Peace Bell presented by Minneapolis’ sister city Ibaraki. It is located on Nicollet Island very near the Hennepin Avenue Bridge. Truthfully – it’s not much of a bell at all. Waving the clapper (it’s the stick at the center of the image) unleashes a sound that I’d describe as:
Dumping your recycling bin down the stairs.
