I experienced threats and requests for financial assistance from many areas of the park, I reported it to the tourist information department the next day , they are aware of it. its a beautiful...

At the heart of the city, a pleasant park to enjoy. Well maintained with plenty of trees to sit beneath and escape from the heat. Come evening there are plenty of street food. A statue stands in the park of General Santos.

We were staying a few blocks from here at the Phela Grande Hotel. I wanted to get out for a walk, so I headed in this direction, since I had seen it on google maps. There was so much traffic in the area, but when I reached the park it was like entering a new world! I sat and watched... More

What I love about the place is that it surrounded by trees and plants. There are chairs within the area where the people can stay. There are speakers installed which played Christmas songs when we got there. This place is perfect for just relaxing, chitchatting and spending your spare time. Across is a government office. When we were in the... More

While attending the mass the kids can wait this well maintained city plaza of GSC. The location is very nice as it is found in the very heart or at the center of the city.

The park is a few minutes away from SM GenSan. It was surprisingly clean. Well overall GenSan really is a clean city I hardly saw trash or even litter in the streets. There are vendors selling different food which you will enjoy. We visited the park since its a few meters away from our hotel. We wanted to check out... More

Located at the heart of the country's Tuna Capital, the Plaza Heneral Santos is the city's breathing space. Well-manicured garden and well lighted pathways make this park the perfect place to while the time away. Safety is no problem. Don't forget to look for local delicacies, such as pastil and sweet corn sold around the oval from late afternoon til... More

Plaza Heneral Santos is where the seat of government of the city is located. It is locally called the "Oval." The oval is loned with three churches - UCCP, INC and RC. At the center is a park. Catch the local delicacies sold in front of the Catholic Church. That's a good cap for a morning run.
