Santa Monica Park & Recreation Place is located in Pavia, Iloilo. It is a 20-30 minute drive from the city proper and downtown, or 15 minute fast drive from the International Airport.
Santa Monica Park & Recreation Place is just a few meters away from my house. Sometimes, I pick up my nephews after their school and bring them to this place. they love to play especially in the dirt. Also, there is a little fun park for everyone that can entertain little children (like me???) so they can have a great stay over the park.
A slide, seesaws, some merry-go-rounds, and other children toys are there to grab their attention. Their are a lot of people staying there every afternoon, especially after a tiring day from the class or work. Mothers would fetch their children and take them to Santa Monica Park so they can have fun.
Ever one’s child would go hungry and would ask for some foods, there are ice cream vendors everywhere. Also, if they want to have a good meal, carinderias (a local restaurant) can be found along the way. A short walk and you can see the Coca Cola Plant. It has big huge coke-in-can bottles served as water tank.
Sometimes, you can capture a great sunset while going home and have a great evening because of the funny things that would happen along the way.
