The latte stones were used as building supports by the ancient Chamorros. These were relocated in the 1950s from an abandoned village sadly destroyed by the Navy. They are cool to see. On site are Japanese tunnels built during WWII, however they were closed. Apparently they were open for people to explore at one point.

The park is being neglected with overgrowth and trash. That hurts the rating.

You can see eight latte stones showing the Chamorro culture.
It was a bit regrettable that it looked like a place where people did not visit.

We were looking for the latte stone featured in the various souvenirs and stumbled upon this park. It wasn't the latte stone we were looking for but it was a nice small park to visit to learn about some local history.

I was over the road having visited the GUAM sign, bandstand and church when I noticed a tour group being taken across the road to this small park. Otherwise I would not have known where these latte stones were bearing in mind that the rental car maps issued on Guam are all atrocious!
But I was interested to see the stones which are a symbol of Guam and to see the Japanese tunnels which were closed off from public entry but nonetheless interesting to see. Other than that, and the statue of the Chamorran senator, there's nothing much here. Maybe just a place to sit during your lunchbreak if you work here.

I was expecting this small street corner park to be much bigger place. The landscaping is nice and would make for a nice picnic stop when visiting Guam. The Latte Stones are pillars of limestone that are supposed to date back to around 500 A.D. They were used by the chieftains we were told by our guide for the Chamarro people to make their homes elevated. The Chamarror's were the people who inhabited ancient Guam.

BOTTOM LINE: OK for a quick visit to see. It will only take yo a few minutes to stroll around them. MY RATING: 6/10.

There is not much to see unless you want to see foundation stones of the ancient Charmoro. There are some WWII Tunnels built by the Japanese

Latte Stone Park is also known as Senator Angel Leon Guerrero Santos Memorial Park. It is a lush setting in Hagatna close to Plaza de Espana. The Latte Stones are pillars on which ancient Chamorro houses were constructed. The stones in the park were moved here for display.

Some Guamanians come to the park to be married. There is plenty of free parking across the street.

I took part in the tour of kayak with my mother in September 14th. 
We were really excited to ride on kayak and to see Chamorro's life style. 

I thought a typhoon which passed a few days ago destroyed many trees and bamboos. But everyone of staff looked bright and pleasantly.
They got some coconuts from fallen trees and made the juice. Even how bad situation, they find good something, that's wonderful. I was very touching Chamorro's spirit. 
Thank you for worth time.
