Korea-Indonesia Friendship Park

Jalan Dr. Soetomo Surabaya has been known as luxurious area for the rich for a long time. In that road, we can find a park named: Taman Persahabatan Korea-Indonesia. Literally translated as Korea-Indonesia Friendship Park. In the middle of the park there is a monument commemorating the friendship between those two countries. It was built on an area of 2600 square meters. Launched in May 8th, 2010, it was designed for public sphere. The construction and design were borne by Korean government and the management, land provision for the park, were by Surabaya government.

My friend and I went there last month. Actually I asked (or forced??) him to take me there because I wanted to know what kind of park is it. After I arrived there, I saw it was a park which was very hot, only few shade trees, and there was no bench so many children sat in the monument. In outer part of the park there was a jogging track. In the side of the park there was a stone which commemorate 15th anniversary of relationship between the sister provinces, East Java and Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea.

The friendship monument. 
There are typos! futher and virification.
So... does East Java have brother? 
The park.
The script in the monument is written in Bahasa Indonesian and Korean. Written there it was built for promoting the friendship between Indonesia and Korea and also hopes for world peace. I just wonder, is there any oso monument like this in Korea? Which commemorate friendship between Indonesia and Korea? I'm curious.
