People’s Park of Davao CityGeneral — By m8orcz on May 15, 2010 at 4:45 pm
First time to visit Davao?
Whenever you are in the city and still wandering around, do not miss the opportunity to ask your relatives or friends to make a stopover to the ever famous recreational spot in the downtown area. It’s one of the bests that Davao have!
After doing all your itineraries for the day, make a little walk along the street from your hotel, or after going to church bring your families to the nearby park that they could enjoy.
Grab a piece of cloth and foods and put it in a picnic basket and bring it to the park, enjoy a nature scenic place that you could not possibly think it has in the middle of the city. ^_^
Take a sluggish-walk to the 4 hectares park which is 71 million worth of development project of the local government, it’s formerly called the PTA where athletes before meets and big concerts were held. It was formally opened last December 15, 2007.
Bring your kids with you, for sure they would be in-love to the cartooned characters touch playground, sing to the music as you take your pictures along with the pine trees and different species of plants and trees; yes, a man-made mini-forest inside the park.
While eating along the side, take a glimpse to the interactive fountains along with its lights that greatly magnifies its beauty. Another craft that you must see, is the waterfalls and ponds, which have different fishes and some birds around it, where elders like lola’s and lolo’s could surely go without hassle because they also provide wheelchairs for them.
Small group of concert will be now conducted at the Great lawn or Green theater and all the large sculptures representing indigenous groups in Southern Mindanao and the Philippine eagle are created by renowned artist, Kublai Millan.
The park also has its built-in surveillance system which surrounds the area, 24hours security and definitely a no-entrance fee needed.
What more could you ask for? make your way to relax and enjoy… 😀
