American Memorial Park honors the American and Marianas people who gave their lives during the Marianas Campaign of World War II. Over 5,000 names are inscribed on a memorial which was dedicated during the 50th anniversary of the Invasion of Saipan. Within the 133-acre boundary are beaches, sports fields, picnic sites, boat marinas, playgrounds, walkways, and a 30-acre wetland and mangrove forest. Suggested activities include: walking, jogging, or cycling along the path from Micro Beach; visiting the Carillon Belltower, U.S. Memorial Court of Honor, Smiling Cove Marina, and various historic and cultural sites; picnicking and barbecuing at designated areas; playing tennis or other sports; relaxing on the beach or picnic areas; observing plants, birds, and flowers in the wetlands and mangrove forest; and attending a special event or activity, such as the Flametree Festival, Liberation Festival, or a beach clean up.
