I spent an afternoon in the park during my first day in Davao. Its my first time to go there. The park is big, with several attractions. The flowers are beautiful also the place where they held affairs or occasions. They also have a childrens playground. You will enjoy roaming around and had your picture taking sessions.

The park is free, it is also well-maintained, you can bring food in, you can bring whoever you like and there is always a seat for any one. What else do you want for a park?
