(10/5/2009)

A group of concerned Australians continue efforts to convert the location of the former Sari Club, destroyed by a terrorist attack on October 12, 2002, into a memorial Peace Park.

The Bali Peace Park Association was formed on September 2, 2008, with a announced goals of creating a park for spiritual reflection that will contribute to tolerance, understanding and freedom among future generation without reference to race, religion, culture or nationality.

Nick Way, one of the founders of The Bali Peace Park Association, told Beritabali.com that his group is raising funds from Australian diplomats, Australians citizens around the world and international companies in order to purchase the land and construct the proposed park.

Efforts to create the park have earned widespread support among groups in Bali, including Bali's Governor Made Mangku Pastika and one of the "local heroes" of the Bali Bombing, Haji Bambang Priyanto. Priyanto won numerous awards for organizing humantarian assistance to the dead and injured in the wake of the 2002 attack.

Priyanto told beritabali.com that the park would be a fitting tribute to the 202 who died in the terrorist attack and, over time, would become an important tourist destination within the island.

Price of Land

In a separate report carried in NusaBali, Nick Way complained that the asking price form the land present owner of Rp. 24 billion (US$240,000) for a plot of land measuring only 800 square meters was proving a significant obstacle to fund-raisers. Independent property valuation surveys conducted on the lot in 2005 suggested a price of around Rp. 8 billion (US$800,000) was more appropriate to the lot's commercial value.
