Freedom Park in Davao City

In the Philippines, local governments are mandated to designate a Freedom Park where people can exercise their constitutional freedom of speech and expression in a peaceful gathering, rallies or protests; a venue where they can ventilate and be heard of the various issues and concerns of the city that confront them.

In Davao City, Freedom Park consists of two parks: the Millennium Park and the Clifford Park. The Millennium Park is located in the center island along the stretch of Roxas Avenue across Ateneo de Davao University, while  Clifford Park is the wide and spacious intersection of Claro M. Recto Street (old Claveria Street) and Roxas Avenue, fronting Ateneo de Davao and Marco Polo Hotel. Clifford Park was named in honor of a United States Army commander who was killed in action during the liberation of Davao in World War II.

    1. Hi Zumi, yes, there are several open spaces in the city where you can do frisbee: in parks, beaches, etc. Browse my blog some more for these two areas. I wish you a happy trip on your next visit to Davao.
