In 1995, this became a national cemetery in memory of the 224 young protestors who were shot to death in a pro-democracy demonstration on April 19, 1960. At that time, Korea's first president, Syng-Man Rhee had rigged the ballots in order to ensure his second presidential term. Angry students and citizens attempted to remove the unpopular president from power. Security guards opened fire after tear gas was unsuccessful at deterring their actions. Despite the sombre message, the park includes a museum, mausoleum, and statues as well as the badminton and tennis courts, and a roller-skating area.
