Constructed to celebrate the Millenial Anniversary of Hanoi, Hoa Binh Park (or Peace Park) has an open and green space and a special architecture compared to other public parks in Hanoi. It has many installations that pay homage to the “peace” theme. The most special of all is the combination of the Lac Bird statue and the pond, which turns into the phrase “No War” when you look at it from a certain angle.
