People's Park, Davao City

3.7
Meander your way along the paved paths of People's Park, underneath a giant metal dome inspired by the appearance of the city’s durian fruit. Bordered with over 1,000 species of plant from across the globe, the park attracts visitors primarily for its sculptures of indigenous peoples, created by Mindanao artist Kublai Millan. Relax in quiet serenity, following the colorful promenade across 4 ha (9.8 ac), stopping at the center to enjoy the dancing fountains surrounded by lush landscaped gardens. Before you head to Davao City, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Davao City trip planner, to make sure you see all that Davao City has to offer, including People's Park.

  • This park is always busy but so big you'll never feel crowded. The children's play area is huge, and plenty of comfort rooms. And the landscape gives numerous opportunities for the photographer in your group. At night this place lights up with beautiful string lights
  • People's Park is a very good park. Child friendly, with playground. Good place for jogging, walking and just relaxing. With nice attractions and fresh air. 👍👍
  • One of the must-visit destinations in Davao City. It is perfect for strolling, exercising and getting a glimpse of Davao City's culture. It's very near the City's Pasalubong Center so tourists will be able to shop after visiting the park.
  • Great location at the heart of the city. Lush green trees and other exotic plants, has artificial river, pond, and waterfall. There are fish, and other animals too. The staff are friendly, there are police and clean and comfy restroom.
  • Clean and green. Nice place to walk/jog in the morning. Specially liked the cartoon type statues and the Philippine Eagle at the entrance.

Where to stay in Davao City

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Davao City, nor a lack of choice between different styles. Close to the central People's Park, a number of hotels great and small offer arrays of facilities to match the number of stars they display outside. A number of fairly basic family-run guesthouses offer up the budget options in town, located primarily on the side streets to the north and south of this central area. Look inland and out of town for a collection of guesthouses located right in the thick of the rural landscape.
