If you’re bound to Corregidor Island anytime soon, you might want to drop by the Filipino-American Friendship Park.

The Filipino-American Friendship Park is a testament to the bond built between the two races during the World War II in the Philippines. The two countries have fought side by side against foes in the Pacific War. The most outstanding feature of the park is the sculpture of Filipino artist Manuel Casas. It s bronze, ten foot high and portrays an American soldier helping a wounded Filipino soldier.

The sculpture was intended to depict the friendship between the two countries. The plaque seen near the statue reads: “In these hallowed surroundings where heroes sleep may their ashes scatter with the wind and live in the heart of those who were left behind. They died for freedom’s right and in heaven’s sight. Theirs was a noble cause”

The sense of Filipino-American camaraderie is further stressed by the two country’s flag placed on either side of the sculpture.

The park itself is a beautiful place for relaxation. With an excellent view, the park incites harmony and peace within anyone who deems to visit it.

Getting to the park is easy. Located at the part of Corregidor Island called Middleside, you only have to ask the driver or if you’re particularly near, then ask for directions. The park is also right behind another tourist attraction, the Pacific War Memorial which also concentrates on the World War II era.

Corregidor is also home to other tourist attractions including an aviary. Check out the different wartime utility buildings such as the Middleside barracks, warehouse, officer’s quarters and the private’s quarters. After sampling some of Corregidor’s attraction, try visiting these sites and reacquaint yourself with the events in the past.
