People's Park @ Davao City, Philippines

Monday, January 03, 2011 Posted by vernon go , , , , ,

It was our last night in Davao after all the work we did and the people we met so we decided for a quick stroll and sight seeing in Davao's People's Park! Though the People's Park was almost closing we still decided to get in and stroll and experience the place as fast as we could despite being full.

walking fast
Davao City’s four-hectare People’s Park which was formerly known as the PTA grounds was opened on December 15, 2007. This P72 million worth park showcases a mini forest, interactive fountains, ponds and waterfalls, a durian dome, a shady and open plaza, a statue of a gigantic Philippine eagle and a fantasy-themed park with large sculptures made by the Mindanaon artist Kublai Millan representing indigenous groups in Southern Mindanao.

The park also showcases a 425-square meter visitors’ center built with a durian dome design, which houses a Bambusetum (a collection of the different species of bamboo); a Shady Plaza where African tulips are planted within the 3, 750 sq. meter-area; and an Open Plaza with a walk-through rainbow drive featuring some collections of potted palms.

Wazder?
Overlooking weee
Lez go there!
The place is really BIG and can be a good place for Joggers and health buffs to walk or run around (DAMN I wish we'd have this back home!) There is also a Greenhouse Museum which will also feature exhibits, showcasing orchids, tropical flowers and ornamentals coming from the mountainous regions in the Philippines.

We had an Awesome time strolling around this colorful park since there were few tourists at that time but unfortunately, we did not had much time left and I'd wish we can see the place in the broad daylight

People’s Park is situated in the heart of the downtown area and is just in front of Casa Leticia and at the back of Apo View Hotel. The streets alongside it are Jose Camus and J. Palma Gil.
