MMDA turns over park

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority yesterday formally turned over to the city government of San Juan the “El Polvorin” Linear Park located within the San Juan Elementary School campus.

The park was built in memory of the martyrs of the Himagsikan sa San Juan del Monte, who valiantly fought with mere jungle bolos Spanish forces on 30 August 1896.

MMDA acting chairperson Carlo Dimayuga III and San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora led the inauguration of the park built under the MMDA’s Adopt-a-Park Program.

“We hope to develop or rehabilitate existing open spaces into functional green parks and recreation areas in partnership with each LGU of Metro Manila to further strengthen initiatives on urban renewal,” Dimayuga said.
