Information about ASNA Park
ASNA Park, located beside the Sison Auditorium in Lingayen, Pangasinan, is built in honor of the ASNA awardees of the province. The site was inaugurated on April 4, 2011, along with the unveiling of the ASNA monument, and in time for the celebration of the 431st founding anniversary of the province or what the locals call as “Agew na Pangasinan”.
ASNA is the old term of the local word “asin” that is used to describe the good quality of a man’s character or his demeanor. The ASNA award serves as a recognition to outstanding Pangasinenses with great dedication to their profession or vocation who contributed a lot to the community and the country as a whole. The first-ever ASNA Award in the province was conducted on April 5, 2010.
Amidst the lush greenery in the park is the ASNA Monument, a sculpture made by Ernesto V. Elduayan. Its pedestal is black and supports small silver three-dimensional squares attached to each other, forming a tower.
Best time to visit
It's best to visit ASNA Park in the dry season (December to May) so you can get a better look at the ASNA monument and easily lounge at the park grounds.
