What to explore at GAP Farm?

GAP is a ten-hectare mountain resort and orchard that is filled with various fruit bearing trees located in the hilly part of Green Valley, Diversion Road, Ma-a, Davao City. The farm is a popular destination frequented by many tourists to spend leisure time together with their dear and loved ones. Educational tours are also held here where students are taught how to appreciate the importance of the natural resources.

One of the main attractions in Gap Farm is the huge marble imprint of the phrase "Land of Promise" set on its vast lawn, which is easily visible while on-board an airplane. Tropical trees and fruits, exotic flowers, plants, and colorful flora and fauna are the main things that you will notice in the farm. Other landmarks of the farm are the old World War II Japanese carved tunnel, a Santo Niño chapel, Mother of Perpetual Help, and mystical statues scattered throughout the farm. Some of the mystical statues are our national heroes, Juan Tamad – a popular Filipino folklore character that depicts the consequences of laziness, and mystical folklore creatures in the Philippines like the white lady, "tikbalang" (half man-half horse), and "kapre" (smoking giant).

GAP Farming Orchard Resort has also an Olympic-size swimming pool where visitors can have a refreshing dip. There are also horseback riding facilities, tables for picnics, and a campsite as well.

its a good place, but more likely a haunted place, its not properly cleaned and mentained. i remember going there when i was a kid. it is so much more different now, maybe due to wear and tear, :(

I hate this place. There is nothing nice about the cement sculptures in it. The place is not well kept. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Waste of money

Just a few minutes taxi ride from downtown Davao City is the lush greenery of Ma-a called tha GAP Farm. With an entrance fee of Php 30.00, three urbanites like us were able to experience half a day , a taste of rural farm life with a bit of education. Aside from the numerous fruit trees (wow ! cashew and pomelos), picnic spopts, an inviting swimming pool, brick-paved walkways , and a souvenir shop playing traditional folk music, we enjoyed the figurines depicting typical farm animals, busts of Philippine presidents, a horseback-riding Gabriela Silang, national heroes, ethnic groups of the three regions of the country and our favorite - replicas of lower Philippine mythology (I like the good-looking "tikbalang"), not to mention the large water buffalo with a farmer on its back at the entrance...Its greenery all around...................Indeed it was a refrershing and relaxing time well-spent at the farm ...
