The nature theme park and biodiversity conservation facility has miniature rainforest, a children’s playground, a jogging trail, a great picnic area with water features, an interactive fountain, a durian dome visitor’s center, and many beautiful areas for personal recreation or even small events.

Overall the downtown park is unique and one of its kind located as it is at the heart of the city and offers a vibrant combination of green space amidst the daily urban activities.

  3. Davao based peeps! I need your help. Who got the contact information of the park’s admin or city administrator.

    I’ve heard that Kublai will no longer finish his works at the park as the PTA supervisor decided to fill the park with Disney characters and cement flowers instead of real ones to save themselves from watering it.

    If such plan would be pursued, we are looking at a future disaster. We are envisioning this city park to depict what Davao is. Not to be just another ordinary park. Our taxes are being utilized for this project so this means that we…Dabawenyos, should have a say to this park.

    Would u rather have another ordinary park with disney characters and cement flowers? Or let them continue what they have started, have a park which is world class and original. Davao’s future landmark is at stake guys! So pls…speak up. Since u are based in Davao now, let the city administrator and park supervisor hear your voices.

    I believe that there is always two sides of every stories. I hope that they (the park supervisor and planners) can explain what they have in mind.
