|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The park location is indicated correctly on the map view below but IS NOT CORRECT on the satellite view, because of misalignment between the two modes.
The memorials and stones documented here are all cenotaphs. There was never a foreign cemetery located here. These stones were brought from other locations and re-purposed as construction materials to line the park's lake. It is also possible that many other headstone were set with the inscribed-side down.
Many of the stones indicate that they originated in a Catholic cemetery. Also, the grave numbers give us a grouping of graves from a common burial ground. Because of the wholesale destruction of foreign cemeteries by the Communist government, we may never know exactly from where they came.
