Peace Park

Labuan, Sabah

Peace Park is a war memorial in Labuan, sponsored by the Japanese government and built as a symbolic gesture of friendship between Malaysia and Japan after the War. Located along the shores of Layang-Layangan Beach about 7km west of Victoria Town, the park is also next to Surrender Point - the very spot where commander of Japan's southern war campaign in Borneo formally handed his sword over to Allied forces on 9 September 1945. Inside the park, visitors can explore a beautifully landscaped garden lined with coconut trees, serene pools, little bridges and its pinnacle - a large oval monument that sits on a square in remembrance of the fallen at Labuan and Sabah during the War.
