It has a lagoon where the 1.5 times bigger than life-size statues of Gen. MacArthur, President Sergio Osmena, Gen. Carlos P. Romulo and General Sutherland, among others stand majestically.

There's also the right plaque titled 'Proclamation' is MacArthur's promise to return to the Philippines. The left plaque is titled 'A Memorial for a Fulfilled Promise'.

Nearby are the 50th Leyte Landing Commemorative Rock Garden and MacArthur Park Beach Resort. Visitors can also enjoy the panoramic view of the Leyte Gulf, and feel the ocean breeze in the area.

I suggest you visit the place early in the morning at 6:00 am or late in the afternoon at 5:00 pm for a more comforting and relaxing atmosphere.
