About Bungkul Park Surabaya

Bungkul Park was inaugurated on March 21, 2007, after being revitalized for more than two years. In 2014, Bungkul Park went through a revitalization process again, after an incident that caused some damages to a large number of plants there.

Covering an area of 900 square meters, this park originally came from a village called Bungkul. This village is famous for its character named Ki Ageng Supo. Until now, the tomb of Ki Ageng Supo is still located behind Bungkul Park, namely on Jalan Darmo.
