Set in a beautifully landscaped area, the Peace Park serves as a memorial and renunciation of the horrors of war.
The park’s serene grounds feature a large, raised memorial mound surrounded by two prominent arched walls, picturesque gazebos as well as Japanese-themed ponds and bridges.
Labuan was under Japanese occupation for four years before yielding to the Allied Forces at Surrender Point on 10th September 1945.
Labuan Peace Park is the only one-of-its-kind in the country. It was built by the Japanese as a symbol of peace, harmony and friendship as well as a tribute to those who lost their lives in Borneo during World War II.
The park was handed over to then Sabah Chief Minister, Datuk Harris Salleh on April 14, 1984, and till this day, the park is still funded by the Japanese.
