CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, PHILIPPINES — After a coordination meeting with City Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy on Monday, November 14, 2022, City Tourism and Cultural Affairs Officer Chedilyn Aissa Dulguime announced that the redevelopment of the Duaw Park will start in 2023.
Dulguime claims that they will renovate Duaw Park to make it more easily accessible to the general public and can host events like concerts and live music.
“It needs to be redeveloped. Himoon gyud siya nga real park where people can converge and stay. So more greeneries and better facilities,” Dulguime said.
The tennis court will be moved and converted into an activity area or parking lot, and the steps will be replaced with a ramp as part of the redevelopment plan. The tennis court area will also serve as the entrance to Duaw Park.
“It’s a park for different purposes. You can use it for exercise, for yoga, for Taichi, for women to bring their children there to play, music at the park, for concerts, for exhibits,” she added.
The city’s tourist director said they would set up an information kiosk and give a portion of the area to flower merchants.
However, Dulguime stated that they would need to have consultations and solicit input from the populace, mainly those impacted in the region, before starting the reconstruction plan for Duaw Park.
Project LUNHAW, the City Government’s climate change resilience initiative, which also includes the renovation of Operation OKK (Kahapsay ug Kalinaw) and the Golden Friendship Park, consists of the development of Duaw Park.
