“Imposing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

The square is pretty expansive, to begin with. Then there's the massive monument in the middle that kisses the sky. A truly imposing sight, with tremendous significance -a memorial for the fallen throughout the city's history. Awe-inspiring indeed.

The statues are impressive and the huge square looks good, especially when lighted at night. Worth a visit.

“Hero's Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

This is a nice place to visit and it's located in a lovely part of town near a beautiful park. If you're in the city in the winter, it's located next to the outdoor ice skating rink

“Impressive monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

This is a huge memorial to the fallen from many battles and wars. No matter how many people are in the square there is always plenty of room, its huge. It stands at the end of a long avenue which in itself is worth a walk along. The park and zoo are close by too.
