THE place has been there for the longest time, mostly neglected. Today, approximately 8,000 square meters of land, at the back, and partly to the side of Fort San Pedro, is now a playground, not just for kids but also for adults.
Entering the grassy expanse, one sees the colorful playground equipment for kids, donated by the Gaisano’s Vicsal Foundation. It is properly fenced off so no child can enter without adult supervision. Towards the back of the children’s playground is a stage, which still needs rehabilitation (the funds are available but the plans for it have not been approved).
Beside it is the start of the section of the playground called ”Duwa.” It is dedicated to native games and funded mainly by the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Incorporated.
There’s a row of sungkaan, some 10 of them firmly fixed on the ground with concrete.
