On April 22nd 2015 was the opening of the "Cherry Blossom Park" in the 22nd district (located near the station Kagran of U1, between Albert-Schultz-Halle and the Prandaugasse School, entrance via Ogugasse). On the occasion of this event a milestone was unveiled and donated to the city of Vienna by the association Genbaku No Hi. This milestone is a plea for a world without nuclear weapons or power.
