The way upto the Peace Park ia by the way of 200 steps (approximately) or 2 escalators next to very well kept gardens.
Apart from the mail statue there are a number of other statues around the park as well as a Peace Fountion.

This Peace Park together with the museum and bomb site make for total insight to the devastation caused. Very well done and a great tribute to all who lost their lives or whose lives were changed forever.
