Essentially a square to commemorate a mass suicide site in Bali in light of the Dutch invasion. Close to the Bali Museum it's a open space area that is smaller than Renon Square.

I have been working in Renon since 1 month now, and I keep enjoying my one hour stroll or a nice pic-nic in the Puputan park. The athmosphere is laid back & sporty at the same time.

Plain grassy area. Statue on one side. Rubbish littered across the grass particularly by the museum Bali and temple. Plenty of pushy tour guides in the area and people flogging their wares. Not recommended, best avoided.
