“Free and clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

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?

“A haven for park lovers within the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I make it a point to drop by the People's Park whenever I'm in Davao City. After long walks within the city proper, I find my way to this place to unwind and observe the locals.

When you go here, make sure you don't bring any illegal or prohibited things. There are security personnel that will make a thorough check of your body and belongings. You can bring food when you want to have picnic inside.

When you're inside, be sure to roam around to check interesting nooks to have your photo taken. Or you can simply find corner to sit and relax.

The park is open for early joggers and people looking for a cool refuge in the evening up to 9 or 10 pm.

“Greens in the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

i like it because it is a goop place to be refreshed and hear the rushing waters and children's laughter in the middle of a busy city. it's located close to hotels, malls, government offices, schools, and even churches. it doesnt offer much activities but being there with the ones dear to you as the sun rises or as the evening falls with great music gently playing on is priceless.
