Based in the middle of the park is the cenotaph, the Pond of Peace & the Flame. A solemn place, with various plaques in different languages expressing their sorrows of the place.

This is another monument in the Peace Park. You want to start at the hypocenter and walk through the Park, studying the monuments as you walk.

This is near the peace flame if you see one see the other, very symbolic and historical however its a five minute thing to see and worth seeing if doing the whole peace park
