Exploring Davao City: People's Park

On the second day we visited the Davao People's Park. Formerly the famous PTA Grounds where the city used to host athletic meets, sports events, concerts, and other events. The old PTA ground has transformed into a beautiful park which features a mini-forest, interactive fountains, waterfalls and ponds, a kid's toyland.

Large sculptures representing indigenous groups in Southern Mindanao and the Philippine eagle.

Gigantic sculpture of the Philippine Eagle

A durian dome, a shady and open plaza, and a statue of a gigantic Philippine eagle, and is frequented by locals, visitors, and foreign tourists.

There are many brilliantly handcrafted concrete artworks representing the Lumads, the indigenous tribe of Davao. The artworks were done by artist Kublai Millan.
