It is a five-hectare park frequented by promenaders who seek rest and relaxation. Overlooking the sea, the park enjoys cool breeze blowing landwards, which relaxes taut nerves. At the middle of the park, a 15th century cannon, believed to have been used against the Moro pirates, is on display. A grotto of Our Lady of Fatima is visible at the far end of the park.

Run by the municipal government, it is a one-and-a-half-hectare resort situated on a riverbank at Barangay Alipaoy, 1.5 kilometers from the town proper. Since 1976, it has been operated and managed by the local government, servicing local residents and those from neighboring towns who frequent the area for picnics and excursions. Picnickers are requested to bring their own food, since there are no restaurants available.

Southern Philippine Cuisine

In Mindanao, the southern part of Palawan island, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi, dishes are richly flavored with the spices common to Southeast Asia: turmeric, coriander, lemon grass, cumin, and chillies — ingredients not commonly used in the rest of Filipino cooking. Being free from Hispanicization, the cuisine of the indigenous Moro and Lumad peoples of Mindanao and the Sulu archipelago has much in common with the rich and spicy Malay cuisines of Malaysia and Brunei, as well as Indonesian and Thai cuisines.
