Very well maintained and clean area, great for picnics as well close to the river. And not to far from town central.

It was heartwarming to see this place so well maintained and obviously well maintained War Cemetery. I felt very humbled by the experience of visiting this place. Loved the large trees outside; Mahogany, Bohdi tree (on that Buddha gained enlightenment under) and many other tree.
