Peoples Park Davao by Jojie Alcantara

People’s Park in dreamy perspective

People’s Park is an urban public park in central Davao City covering an area of 4 hectares. Formerly the famous old PTA Grounds I used to hang out with classmates during inter-school sports events, this P72M worth recreational park opened on December 15, 2007. A “name that park” contest was launched by the city government, and there you have it.

Eat all you can Durian!

(HEAVENLY) SMELL ALL YOU CAN! Kadayawan Festival in Davao may be over but the fresh harvest of durian fruit is still coming in, hence this vendor’s offer of an “Eat all you can Durian” from his location outside the Pasalubong Center beside People’s Park. At only a cost of P89, grab the chance to feast yourself of its heavenly taste and smell right after lunch time until the evening. When asked when this promo will last, the stall owner merely smiled and said, “Until supply lasts.” August 2012 © Jojie Alcantara   Like my stuff so far?
