On the Island of Saipan, part of the Northern Mariana Islands, stands the living memorial that is American Memorial Park. It honors the sacrifices that many military personnel and island residents made during the Marianas Campaign in 1944 that marked the beginning of the end of the Pacific War. Though beautiful monuments such as the Memorial Court of Honor and Flag Circle, the Marianas Memorial, and the Saipan American Memorial and Carillon Bell Tower commemorate those who lost their lives, the park is a "living memorial" due to the recreational activities that can be enjoyed on the grounds. With over 133 acres of land, the park features something for tourists of all ages and abilities. Beaches, boat marinas, picnic sites, and playgrounds are great for swimming, gathering, and relaxing, sports fields offering baseball and tennis, and walkways and a Mangrove forest for walking, running, and cycling. Visitors will also find historic markers around the park describing events that took place or showing historical remnants of the war and island life at the time. The park was dedicated in June of 1994 which marked 50 years since of the Invasion of Saipan in 1944.
