NAVOTAS CITY – The local government of Navotas City recently inaugurated the extension of Navotas Centennial Park as part of the celebration of the city’s 113th founding anniversary.
Navotas City Mayor John Rey Tiangco and Representative Tobias Tiangco led the inauguration of the 9,000-meter expansion of the park located in Brgy. Bagumbayan North.
According to the local government, the waterfront extension in the reclaimed area is part of its plans for the public park wherein several events or activities are being held.
Tiangco expressed his gratitude to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) for all its efforts in implementing the project.
“Simula pa lamang ito. Binilisan ang konstruksyon ng lugar na ito para mabigyang-daan ang pagdaraos ng mga serye ng aktibidad para sa 113th Navotas Day ngunit marami pa ang gagawin dito. Magsisilbi itong aktibong sentro ng ating lungsod kung saan ang mga pamilyang Navoteño ay maaaring mamasyal, maglaro, mag-relax at makapagpahinga,” he said.
(This is just the beginning. The city council accelerated the expansion of the park to give way to various activities celebrating the 113th Navotas Day. But we will undertake more projects to improve it that shall serve as the city’s center where every family can take a stroll, play, relax, and unwind.)
The legislator initiated the Navotas Centennial Park during his administration in 2006 which was constructed in what used to be a garbage transfer site.
It was opened to the public during the city’s 100th founding anniversary. In 2011, the local government expanded the scope of R10 Bridge which affected certain parts of the park.
This prompted the city government to declare the Navotas Centennial Park as the city’s family zone.
