family park cebu

The hustle and bustle of the city made you want to go somewhere else to unwind or just relax. Since we are located in the city, it is kind of difficult to find a place aside from your own home wherein you’ll just indulge yourself from the breeze and the sunlight. Of course, parks are your to-go places when you need one but then again it is kind of hard to find one, so a list is made for you.

1) D’ Family Park

This man-made park is located in Talamban and offers a variety of recreational activities for everyone. There is a huge vast land covered with green grass in the area, not only that there is also a mini-zoo. Children would truly love the place because a swimming pool is also set-up and a playground wherein they could play until their hearts’ content. You can also pack up your lunch and go on a picnic in the place, although chairs and tables are available.

2) Senior Citizens’ Park

Seldom people know about this place since the location is far from the public eyes. This is situated at the back of the City Hall near the Basilica Minore de Sto. Nino church and Magellan’s Cross. The park’s design is actually inspired by the Fuente Osmeña Circle wherein a fountain stands in the center. There are benches where people can sit or just simply squat down in the grass. In the night, the park is lighted with different bulbs which make it more romantic.

3) Fuente Osmeña Circle

The most known rotunda in Cebu since it is located in the heart of the city. The enormous fountain in the center with different lights that illuminates during the night is the place to go. It is usually where events are held especially during the Sinulog Festival and on Christmas time. Fuente Osmeña Circle is surrounded with establishments like malls, fast food chains, hotels and the like.

4) SRP Baywalk

SRP Baywalk is the best place to relax and enjoy the view since the place offers the view of the city with the ocean. Of course, you need your own vehicle or hire a taxi cab in going to the place. SRP is short for South Road Properties in which the Baywalk is located. It is not actually a park but the view that the place got to offer is picturesque. You can bring your own food and eat there while chitchatting with your friends or by a way of bond with your family.

5) Plaza Independencia

Nothing can beat the park in Plaza Independencia. This park is rich in culture also since Fort San Pedro is just besides the plaza. It is known where our old ancestors used to watch out for the foreign people who may land in. The plaza has a huge grass land, stone-cement pathways, benches and many more can be found in the place. There is a common dating place among couples and the usual venue for students who want to practice or shoot their projects.

Now you have the idea on which park you want to visit I suggest that you shall not limit yourself from this list because you can still do other things that can help you minimize your stress and relax.

valentines day in cebuSingle? Taken? It’s complicated? Everyone has the right to celebrate Valentines’ day. Love month officially started and it is a big of a deal especially people in social network always posting stuffs related to the 14th of February which makes it harder to forget. Valentines’ Day doesn’t always mean you need to spend the day with your partner but you can also bond with your family or catch up with your friends.

If you’re still confused on what to do on that day, here are the things you may want to do with your loved ones:

1) Visit a church

Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino is the famous church in the city because it is rich in culture and it is where the patron saint of Cebu is located. There are respective churches or chapels in each barangay that is accessible to you.

Someone told me that this is the first “to-do” during the Valentines’ because you must be thankful that you are spending the special day with someone you love and care about. Since it is also Saturday, you can attend the anticipated mass or light a candle. You can also visit religious sites just like Magellan’s cross or the Simala Shrine.

2) Adrenaline rush

People who are have extreme habits take this opportunity to visit the nearest adventure park. If you wish to spend the day in the city, the Rainforest Park is open for all. It offers a variety of entertainment, leisure, even educational activities suited for all ages.

You can also hike up a mountain since Cebu has a wide range of mountain or peaks that will surely tire your legs out. Osmeña Peak is the famous one which is located in Dalaguete. Mt. Kan Irag in Busay or the Mt. Manunggal in Balamban can also ease up your adrenaline. There are more other mountains that you can climb.

3) Indulge in food

What’s a date without food? Everywhere we go, there are restaurants and diners that offer a variety of specialty may it be Filipino, Mexican, Korean, American and the like, not to mention the countless fast food chains around the city. In each province in Cebu, there are also delicacies you may not want to miss. Cebu is known for the dried mangoes, Argao for the tasty Torta sa Argao, and Danao for its kasahos.

4) Appreciate God’s creation

Everywhere you go, you can always appreciate the beauty of nature and, where is the best place for that? You need to be with nature itself.

Since the Valentines’ day is in the weekend, you can actually hit the beach and sleep under the stars. Tingko Beach in Alcoy or Basdaku Beach in Moalboal offers the same white beach sand and the crystal blue water.

You can also visit SRP Baywalk or TOPS Skyline Garden where you can sit down and relax while absorbing the majestic view the place got to offer.

5) Check something off your bucket list

A bucket list is a list of everything you want to accomplish within a period of time. If you don’t have a bucket list, don’t worry about it. It just simply means you do something you wanted to do for a long time.

Go snorkeling in Malapascua Island or watch the whale sharks in Oslob, your choice since it is your day to spend with. There are a lot of activities you can actually do during the Valentines’ day, don’t limit yourself with just the typical dinner date. You can go island hopping or go to a spa and have a massage.

Of course, these are just suggestions and certainly you know the person you’ll be going with so make it fun and memorable at the same time.
