The American Memorial Park, located at the north end of Garapan Village in the Puntan Muchot/Ppiyal Ooláng area, was created as a memorial honoring the sacrifices made during the Marianas Campaign in World War II. It is managed by the U.S. National Park Service. The park features a Visitor’s Center which houses a World War II museum, a 120 seat movie theater, and a bookstore. Other important features include the Court of Honor and Flag Circle listing the names of U.S. service personnel killed during the Marianas Campaign, the Marianas Monument to the more than 900 local civilians who lost their lives during this conflict, and the Carillon Bell Tower marking the end of World War II. The large outdoor amphitheater is used for concerts, theatrical presentations, and other public events. The park is an excellent source of information about the World War II history of the Northern Mariana Islands.
