I am pretty sure you are familiar with Panagbenga Festival, but did you know that we have a Panagbenga Park here in the city? One trivia about this park is that this is where the opening of the Panagbenga Festival is held. Panagbenga Park is between the roads of Loakan and South Drive. Upon entering the park you can see here different types of plants such as flowers and fruit-bearing trees. Also, we have here statues of animals that you can take a picture with. Inside the park is a Butterfly House and Saleng Garden.
A park located in Aurora Hill. While I was at Bayan Park, the first thing I observed is that it’s the widest among the first parks I visited. Here I saw people jogging and walk their dogs. If you are just around the area instead of going to Burnham Park for jogging and other morning exercises you have it at Bayan Park. The park is more private compared to parks where people usually go jogging. Also, for those with children, the park has a playground where they can play.
