The Capitol Park and Lagoon is open to the public as of today, December 16, which Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon, Jr. referred to as “essential.”
The governor said the landmark serves as a venue for jogging, exercise, and Zumba; along with a place for the public to relax.
Last week, a petition was set up by Provincial Council for Women chair, Atty. Andrea Lizares-Si, demanding the Capitol Park and Lagoon to be reopened after almost a year of renovations.
The P25 million development of the Capitol Park and Lagoon is one of several projects in the area being undertaken by Ayala Land./JJA, WDJ
