I am from Tacloban and I've been here quite often. This is usually where people go to after a morning jog. You can find small nipa-hut stores selling fresh buko juice.As it's a popular landmark, it badly needs improvement though. Needs tighter security to keep them outsiders trashing the place. There are a few hotels and some beach resorts you... More

my first time to visit the historical place,akala ko dati sila macathur nasa dagat mismo :) the move to higher para hindi masira sa malakas na wave. you buy souvenir items or pampasalubong in the park, mayroon den mga tindahan ng food incase nagugutom na kayo roaming around pwede rin kayo magpicnic under the tree if have time.

IF you're in the area then its worth the few min drive from Tacloban. Not much to see other than the statues on the landing site where Mac Arthur returned. I would have liked to see more plaques with a more detailed historical account of what happened and what makes the site significant. It is pretty well kept, did not... More

I am lucky I left in Tacloban before the typhoon. One of the statue was fell down due to the typhoon, hopefully it sorted now. The Park... More

Important historical landmark shared by the Philippines and the U. S. MacArthur himself was not so grand, but as a symbol of the war and the cooperation between Phils and Us, it is important.

The famous line of Mac Arthur was a dream come true for me, to see this park where the Leytenos create a replica of Mac Arthur landing together with his companion during the WWII. It will take you 20-30 minutes from the airport heading to the park. A nice place to visit that very rich in Philippine history.
