This is a must-visit place for people visiting Zamboanga. Located in Pasonanca Park, a half an hour jeepney ride from downtown. Pasonanca Park is a very popular spot to stroll throughout the year, especially in the summer time, as there is a swimming pool in the park and playground for kids.The swimming pool, is very popular for all Zamboanguenos for family picnics during the summer time. A beautiful place to escape the summer heat and a favorite "hang-out" spot for students after school to go "for a swim".
The Pasonanca Tree House, is popular spot for souvenir photo shots, even for locals. The tree house is equipped with a stove, a little bed and a small table. Make sure to take a good peek inside the tree house. While on my last visit to Zamboanga, I managed to drive and "walked" around the park and noticed new additional attractions: The Butterfly Park, Birds Sanctuary, Maria Clara Garden and Museum, established after a prominent family, well-known and popular among Zamboanguenos for the family's political and philantrophic ties in the community.
Over-all, the park is highly recommended for everyone for leisurely walk/stroll it is a and family-oriented park. Not recommended for after-hours visit. For visits to Zamboanga, which is located in Mindanao, it is recommended to check with the local government for travel advisory to Zamboanga.
