American Memorial Park Activities

Etched into stone plaques are the names of more than 5000 military personnel who gave their lives during the Marianas WW II Campaign. The Memorial surrounds the tall American flag, flanked by the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force flags.

The Carillon Belltower is dedicated to the American and Northern Marianas people who died during World War II. In their remembrance, bells chime every half-hour from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

HISTORIC SITES

The park contains many remnant structures from World War II. Scattered throughout the park are Japanese pillboxes, buildings, fuel storage tanks, bunkers, and a bathhouse/garden complex. There is also a Chamorro Latte Stone near the park entrance where Beach Road ends.

CULTURAL SITES

The first Carolinian village site is marked by a wayside exhibit at Micro Beach.
