Why People's Park is special ?

Formerly the famous PTA Grounds in Davao City, Philippines, this P72 M worth People's Park opened on December 15, 2007 which features a mini-forest, interactive fountains, waterfalls and ponds, a kid's toyland and large sculptures representing indigenous groups in Southern Mindanao and the Philippine eagle. These sculptures are created by my good friend and renowned artist, Kublai Millan. No entrance fee, but on weekends, it's practically packed with people and visitors from all over.

It's a little park basically with some areas that are ok for photos. There's no adventure or glamour and it's a hang out for Davao residents.I walked through there once and it was pleasant.I don't know that it would be too exciting for foreign visitors whereby Samal, Jack's Ridge, Crocodile Park would be ahead on that list.

The park is clean and it is no smoking. You can definitely enjoy your time if you have kids. The sculptures are a real work of art.
