to EX­PLORE in Davao City

Sun.Star Davao - - 4 NEW PLACES - By Ace June Rell S. Perez

Davao City will never run out of new places and con­cepts to dis­cover.

If you're a tourist and it's your sec­ond time to visit Davao or a Dabawenyo who wants to ex­plore new things in your city, here are four new places you might want to con­sider:

Davao Bam­boo Sanc­tu­ary and Eco­log­i­cal Park

Sit­u­ated in a semi-forested area in Barangay Mala­gos, Baguio Dis­trict, Davao Bam­boo Sanc­tu­ary and Eco­log­i­cal Park is now con­sid­ered as a new tourist at­trac­tion in the city.

It is per­fect for those who want to es­cape from the city buzz.

The park is a 3.5 hectare prop­erty that was then part swamp, part or­chard.

It has a spring pool, pond where you can go fish­ing, col­or­ful fresh flow­ers and bam­boos.

Hyper­bola Ball Pit-Cafe

An­other cut­ting-edge con­cept just jumped in Davao City, is the Hyper­bola Ball Pit-Café.

The trendy es­tab­lish­ment will let one plunge into a sea of a hun­dred thou­sand, 150,000 to be ex­act, calm­ing white balls play­ground-de­signed to pro­mote the trans­for­ma­tive and ther­a­peu­tic power of play.

Lo­cated at 1029-B, Emilio Jac­into Ex­ten­sion, Davao City (near Cen­tral Bank of the Philip­pines and fronting Im­manuel Bap­tist Church), the pit is 36 square me­ters, filled with waisthigh level sea of a hun­dred thou­sand white balls. The ball pit can ac­com­mo­date a max­i­mum of 40 play­ers at once.

Al­ti­tude in­door tram­po­line Park

The new Al­ti­tude In­door Tram­po­line Park lo­cated at Damosa Com­plex in Lanang brings back child­hood mem­o­ries as one jumps and bounces on their tram­po­lines.

With a whop­ping floor area of 1,600 square me­ters, chil­dren and young pro­fes­sion­als alike are sure to en­joy the ar­ray of tram­po­lines and tum­ble tracks po­si­tioned to make their jump­ing ex­pe­ri­ence more en­joy­able.

Ma-a Torro

The newly-opened restau­rant is lo­cated in Mala­gos, Baguio Dis­trict, Davao City (along­side the road be­fore reach­ing Davao's pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions: Mala­gos Garden Re­sort and Philip­pine Ea­gle).

At present it serves na­tive del­i­ca­cies of Bagobo K'lata Tribe.

The word "Ma'a Torro" is a Bagobo K'lata word which means "Man­gaon ta (let's eat!)"

"This is a col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort and idea of Davao Lu­mad lead­ers. We de­cided to open a restau­rant like this be­cause we want to show to the pub­lic the de­li­cious food pre­pared by the Lu­mads," Kes­sia Tar, owner of the restau­rant said. Tar is from the Bagobo K'lata tribe.

She added that open­ing such restau­rant is also a move nec­es­sary to pre­serve their cul­ture in terms of food and del­i­ca­cies.
