Memorial Park is a popular place for both tourists and locals. There are walking paths, gardens, monuments, flowers, a footbridge, and places to grill for picnics. The park is located along the beautiful Micro Beach, between the Hyatt Regency Resort and Smiling Cover Harbor. There is also an outdoor amphitheatre and a museum. The museum features a movie about Saipan’s role in World War II and has an intriguing collection of WWII artifacts. Every visitor to Saipan should visit the museum to learn about Saipan’s history. If you visit Saipan in May, the Taste of the Marianas festival is held in park, and features local foods, music and dancing.
