Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez said that a new MacArthur Park is set to be built at the Bonuan Tondaligan on the second quarter of 2018.
The Pangasinan politiko said the new park will feature statues of General Douglas MacArthur and his staff walking along the beach.
The new park will be constructed on the site of the old water reservoir of Dagupan.
Dagupan Councilor Jeslito Seen has also asked the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) for a list of historical structures and artifacts associated to the city.
The NHCP earlier said only the Church of Dagupan and the Luzon Landing in Bonuan Blue Beach have been officially identified as a structure and site with historical value respectively.
