[Tweet “Davao Landmark : People’s Park”]

Formerly the once popular PTA Grounds in Davao City, 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 were 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. Concerts and shows have been held here as well as other activities.
