Redevelopment of Gov. Vicente de Lara Park (formerly MacArthur Park or simply Capitol Park) is nearing completion. Only a small portion on the north side facing Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas is left for further work.
This area here shown below is the only remaining section of the park which is still undergoing redevelopment. Construction materials are still onsite and work continues.
Other areas have been completed with walkable tiled pathways and beatifully landscaped gardens and benches….truly a park within a city.
Photo below shows the heritage monument at the center of the park.
The park is now teeming with people from all walks of life….
