Nayong Pilipino is cultural and heritage theme park located at the Clark Field, Pampanga, occupying of the Clark Expo (formerly known as Expo Filipino). The park is home to a representation of the Philippines’ geography and culture in the form of replicas and miniatures of the country’s top tourist destinations and even tribal people villages.
The original Nayong Pilipino, built in the 1970s, was established near the Ninoy Aquino International Airport 2 in Manila. But when expansion was needed for the airport, the park was transferred to Clark in 2002 and reopened to the public in 2007.
There are over 15 sections or areas inside the park, each with its own displays of different places in the Philippines, museums, and learning facilities. Some of the most notable ones include smaller versions of the Banaue Rice Terraces, Barasoain Church of Malolos, Bulacan, Dr. Jose Rizal’s house, and the Aguinaldo Shrine.
Several village houses that represent some of the country’s tribal and indigenous peoples can also be found in the park including the Aeta, Ifugao, and Kalinga villages. Museo ng Nayon can also be found within the vicinity and it houses Filipino textiles made by different Filipino tribes and peoples, including ones found in Mindanao.
On October 2019, Nayong Pilipino will be rebranded and relaunched as Nayon Clark Park. The park has been undergoing many improvements and renovations as part of this relaunching including a theater area that is planned to hold daily cultural shows and become an avenue for young and up-and-coming Filipino artists in different fields.
The new-and-improved park is hoped to attract more students and educational institutions for field trips as well as tourism activities centered on meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE).
