We have been past here many times and had our photos taken on the steps to the monument - your standard tourist stuff.

This time our Balinese friends took us to accompany them (and many others) to exercise, they walk the square 3 rounds, almost every day. Everyone sweats a lot, even locals, and some wear coats in the heat, for maximum perspiration (!!).

As frequent visitors to Bali, and being fortunate to often get off the tourist trail, we loved being with the local people who walked and ran the square. All manner of attire, speeds, and no pressure to compete in any way - not with speed, footwear (many were barefoot) or wearing the right label clothing.

We compared it to biking the cycle paths in Perth, where serious cyclists bent on their own time trial, get aggro if you aren't fast enough and accidentally hinder them in their quest. And wearing appropriate gear seems all important to so many. Not here.

Even a luwak (coffee is made from their pooh), accompanied its dad on the walk, perfectly happy, sitting around his neck.

This is a good place to enjoy being in Bali amongst local people being themselves in a wonderful, goodnatured and stress free way. No pressure, no rush. Just chill.

See many activities in the park before, or after, you visit the Bajra Sandhi monument. By the way, the jogging track gives you 2.5 km in one round ;-)

It is a beautiful park where lots of activities can be done: jogging, walking, people watching, visiting the monument or the Bajra Sandhi Monument, posing in front of the " I am Bali" signage, etc.

Note that 20,000 rupiahs are the entrance fee for the monument. The Square is FREE!

Renon Square also called Puputan Margarana Square is located in Denpasar civic center surrounded by the Governor's house, Parliament Building, Prominent Banks and local mansions. There is a beautiful priest's bell like monument in the middle called the Bajra Sandi. This is a very popular place for gatherings, relax, to stroll, jogging or for doing sports for the local Denpasarese people with beautiful lawn and shady trees.
