Near the edge of the city is a giant expanse of grass, lined with paths of white gravel and carefully arranged foliage. A spot in its center offers swings and slides for children. Bushes dot the lush grass offering places to sit. The open land on the side, nothing but hills,is a popular place for picnics, meetings, classes, and dates. The large memorial dedicated to the war, in the center of the park, explains its name.
