If you are living in Davao, this place is a very nice place to relax or jog. But if you are a tourist, there is really nothing new to see. It is just a standard park with a playground, park benches and a concrete running path around the park. It is not as big as expected, some areas also needs... More

I like this park because it is Free, clean, open, well-guarded and plenty of place to sit around. I went here alone and tried to look at it as an adult and as a child. I think Families will enjoy this park. There are whimsical sculptures decorating the whole which are really nice, and there is a photo exhibit when... More

Beautiful park with lots of local art and statues. Great place to people watch, enjoy a picnic, walk off a big meal or even use the jogging track. Very safe!

Unless you go for a jog, you can be in and out within 30 minutes. I think people are exaggerating the park's cleanliness and landscaping. I don't mean to offend Filipinos, but this park is noteworthy only by Philippine standards. But to Westerners, it's just an average park they can see back home everywhere. The jogging track looks like a... More

The park is best visited at night when the heat is more bearable and the lights are on. The dark can hide the blemishes of the park, known as a place where locals just sit and chat. The kitschy sculptures and fake pond are a hit with the locals. Around the park are grill restaurants and pseudo-artist vendors of pendants... More

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.
