The park is near the City Hall. There is a big garden where the Madonna of Japan is erected. It is a big statue. The statue can easily be seen from the main road.

Nice serene spot, lovely view of the bay. Pretty, peaceful, memorial garden, but not much to really see or do there. Quite small. Unfortunately lots of litter there too Easy to get to and a nice spot to sit down though. I liked it!

This historical place has been well known for young couples hiding in the bushes and doing some dirty deeds. Its a shame because it destroys the beauty of the place. I hope there will be changes and more security in this place soon.

Nothing to see here except a loads of young couples making put in the overgrown grass. Very disappointing, I don't know why this is listed as something to see. There is a statue, in the long grass.

Now this was a weird place, for some reasons. By the time I came here, I was intrigued with the name of the statue, how Japan got involved, and what was the purpose of erecting such landmark in this part of the Visayas. The place...More
