Scenic Sunday # 107 : Vicente de Lara Park Grounds (1 of 5)

Scenic Sunday

Provincial Capitol of Misamis Oriental
Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines

Traveling will never be complete with out checking out the public parks where locals converge. for the next five (5) weeks, starting 01st of August 2010, ill be featuring the grounds of Vicente de Lara Park of Cagayan de Oro City.

Vicente de Lara is the former governor of the province. This park was formerly called Gen. Douglas MacArthur Park. People said that when Gen Douglas Mac Arthur left Corregidor Island (in the province of Cavite), he landed in Cagayan de Oro en-route to Australia.

Local folks go here for a game of Badminton or to jog or just to meet their friends. Expos and trade fairs are also held here. This park as of this writing is still under renovation. that is why every time I pay a visit a new attraction amazes me.

The first scene I want to share to you is this photo, the Provincial Capitol Building. Cagayan de Oro is the province's capital and of Northern Mindanao. Every time I go to a provincial capital, I see to it that i have a glimpse and a photo of its Capitol and of its City (or town) Hall.
