Well maintained park fronting the city hall . It's difficult to stay long coz of the heat of the sun but nice to drop by and have photo shoots. Restaurants nearby.

Its just a small park in the middle of town. A few structures like a entrances and bandstand . Also, the podium where Presidents of the republic spoke to the people during his visits to zamboanga.

Passed by this place by accident. It's a small place that you can easily miss if you don't know it's there. I saw people happily pass the time here. Didn't stay long though as my friends warned me there are snatchers in the area. So just be careful.

Its crowded and can be scary at night or any time of the day. Be careful and dont stay around too long. Plaza pershing is a good to see place since it's right in front of the City hall. Nothing fancy except for the history and the dancing fountain at night.

there was an on-going agricultural trade fair when I dropped by, so not much to see actually. The area is just small, near the city hall. It was quite crowded, there were some students milling about.

This plaza never seems to run out of people. Almost everybody stays here to just unwind or meet-up with friends. I just wish there were more seats and better attractions for people here.

Relaxing venue in the center of the city; or shop til you drop then come to rest here sipping your coconut juice while enjoying the breeze of the wind. A small escapade from the busy-ness of the streets around.
