Nayong Pilipino is a cultural and heritage theme park located at the Clark Field, Pampanga, occupying the site of Clark Expo (formerly known as Expo Filipino). The park is home to a replicas and miniatures of the country's top tourist destinations and indigenous villages that represent the Philippines’ geography and culture.
The original Nayong Pilipino park, 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.
