Forest Park: A Quick Getaway within Bacolod City
There's a forest right within Bacolod City, at Barangay Taculing. Aptly called Forest Park, it is a quick getaway for short retreats, kiddie field trips, family picnics, group parties, and lovers' rendezvous.
I love the green scenery of Forest Park and the peaceful quiet of the place. It has been an inspiration of several of my paintings.
It also has a man-made boating lagoon where children and lovers can enjoy.
A mere 15-minute drive or less from the heart of the city just a stone's throw away from the former Bacolod Sanitarium and Hospital, now the Bacolod Adventist Hospital, one can easily enjoy a laid back affair at Forest Park.
