The War in the Pacific National Historical Park is located at Agana (Hagatna) to the west of Agana on Guam Island in the Territory of Guam in the Mariana Island Group (Mariana Islands). Administered by the National Park Service (NPS) as the only park that honors the bravery and sacrifices of all those who participated in the Pacific Theater of World War II.
the Japanese occupation of Guam, Adelup Point was
a heavily armed site with fortifications built into
the rock cliffs. A battery of large guns was also
mounted at the point. After the recapture of the
island by the United States, Commodore W. O. Hiltabidle,
CEC USN, 5th Naval Construction Brigade, set up his
command post here.
With Marine Drive at its entrance
and a jagged cliff line to its rear, Adelup park has
developed into one of the island's busiest central
parks. Not only is it a favored recreational site,
the park also functions as the surrounding grounds
for Guam's seat of Government.
