A large green grassland that you can walk along with family or your couple. You can get lots of historical info from the memorial museum. It's also a good place for a short rest.

I really enjoyed my time in the museum. It has a nice display about WW2 in Saipan which isn't overwhelming with information. Plus, they have a very good 20 minute video about Saipan and the war. I'd highly recommend this Museum.

Be sure to go inside the visitor center and see the movie. Allow at least an hour. Movie is about 20 minutes long. Museum/ display is interesting- allow another 20 minutes for that at least. They have a small gift shop. They are Air Conditioned!!
