The Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) in coordination with the Multi-Sectoral Governance Council (MSGC) inaugurated the newly-restored Freedom Park also known as Heroes Hill on December 15, 2017.

The Freedom Park Stairway or Heroes Hill lies west of the Capitol Hill in Guerrero Road, Brgy. II, City of San Fernando, La Union. It has a total of 153 steps and along the way up, 9 statues of Heroes are standing, signifying the people’s reverence to their works and sacrifices in attaining the freedom of the nation. They are Dr. Jose Rizal, the Philippine National Hero; Fr. Jose Burgos, leader of the Filipino Martyrs “GOMBURZA”; Marcelo H. Del Pilar, editor of La Solidaridad; Andres Bonifacio, founder of the Katipunan; Gen. Antonio Luna, greatest general of the Revolution; Ramon Magsaysay, 3rd President of the Philippine Republic; Manuel A. Roxas, 5th President of the Philippine Republic; Manuel L. Quezon, President of Philippine Commonwealth; and Emilio Aguinaldo, 1st President of the Philippine Republic. When one reaches the top, a beautiful overlooking view of the West Philippine Sea can be found.
