A fun viewing for family with kids, Veterans Park showcases actual fighter planes from World War II. The park’s main feature, however, is the Lingayen Gulf Landing Shrine, which was built in memory of the Filipino freedom fighters during the historical Gulf Landing in Lingayen. The park displays grand dioramas and art pieces that commemorate the events leading to the Gulf Landing. One of the highlights of these pieces is the replica of the oil in canvas painting entitled Spirit of ’45 by James Turnbult. It documents the heroic act of a Filipino guerilla waving an American flag, signalling that the Japanese forces had retreated and therefore Americans can safely land. Veterans Park was unveiled in 2008 by the 12th Philippine President Fidel V. Ramos.
Open: Open everyday, 24 hours.
Address: Maniboc, Lingayen, Pangasinan
