Light Fountain in Malabon

September 10, 2022

Malabon City Mayor Jeannie Sandoval led the inauguration of the newly renovated Plaza in Barangay Hulong Duhat, alongside MMDA dignitaries yesterday night in Women’s Club Street.

MMDA Chairman Carlo Antonio D. Dimayuga III graced the event and expressed pride for the project.
“This was funded under the MMDA’s ‘Adopt-A-Park Program’ jointly implemented with the city government,” he disclosed.

Hundreds of city residents joined the simple festivity in the 1,580 square meters recreation site anticipating the first lighting of the fountain in a public park.

The plaza featured three chess tables, swing benches, kiddie rides, and ground painted traditional Filipino outdoor games like piko, tumbang preso, luksong baka and luksong tinik.

Mandated by the city mayor, the park was initially designed by the City Planning and Development Department (CPDD) to be ‘ecologically thematic’ aimed at raising public awareness on renewable energy, since some lights in it were solar powered.

Dimayuga in his address attributed the design of the plaza to the rich culture, history and scenic places that Malabon is known for.

Barangay Chairman Wenceslao Dela Cruz expressed his gratitude to Sandoval and the MMDA for reviving the Hulong Duhat Plaza, which he expects will be enjoyed by families and the children from all over the city since it is strategically located adjacent to schools, a market, and residential areas.

Malabon residents present during the occasion jubilantly trooped to the park.

Malabon National High School (MNHS) students already in face-to-face classes also passed by after school and witnessed the opening ceremonies.

The first lady chief executive of the city, conveyed strong hopes for further engagement with the MMDA under the same program to construct and improve other parks in Malabon.

She believes that it will also be helpful in boosting the economy and tourism of the city.

She was very pleased with the speedy completion of the project that would provide a conducive place for physical exercises and zumba, for children to safely play outdoor games, and for families to bond.
