Park · Nature / Park
Remember the soldiers and civilians who lost their lives during World War II at American Memorial Park, which pays tribute to the 4,000-odd Americans and local Mariana islanders killed during the 1944 conflict with Japanese forces. Spend a moment in reflection at the park's central war monument, then take a walk around the premises, which include facilities for cycling, swimming, and tennis. If you're lucky, you might catch a performance at the open-air, amphitheater-style stage located within the park. Plan your visit to American Memorial Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Saipan trip itinerary builder website.

  • Wonderful place to spend hours, if not days soaking in the many fragrances of numerous varieties of flowers alone. This is a very well maintained park that should be visited often. Whether on a family outing, or just by yourself, be sure to take your camera and lots of batteries. I did!
  • Indoor museum is great, small, but does a great job depicting the era of Saipan during WW2. Many pieces from the wartime era with good descriptions. The museum also has a small movie theater that shows an informative short film that is with the visit as well. Outside has some displays, but not really the focus of the property. Enjoyed my visit the couple of times that I've been, would be happy to go again.
