The Veterans Memorial Park in Lingayen, Pangasinan 2015

It was 1 pm the conference which we attended just commenced, and so I grab the short time to go to the ATM machine. My colleagues did not bother to go with me since; the sun is real hot that noon. Across the street of the ATM machine is where the famous Veterans Memorial Park was located and so I grabbed the chance to take a sneak peak. 

When we are on our way to Lingayen I search for possible tourist spots that we can visit, one of the list was the Veterans Memorial Park my assumption was it was a gallery in a very large museum. Museum as in inside a big huge building.

But as to astonishment, it was really a park, an open field with the display under the heat of the sun except of course for the photos which is housed in a roofed photo gallery with all sides open.

There are the display of the old machines small planes, combat tanks and heavy duty guns used by the Americans during the World War II. The site is a historical landmark since the gulf course is used to protect from the enemies.
In the photo galleries are very old pictures taken during those times. It was educational and it makes you understand our rich history.

The best time to visit the place is early morning and late afternoon, so you won’[t burn under the heat of the sun.

Adjacent to it is the fabulous Pangasinan provincial building. 

Here are the photos I took during that afternoon getaway.
