The park in recent years has been a popular Christmas destination and a tourist spot not only in Metro Manila but among foreign tourists and expats living in the country.
larger than life- nativity scene
The park features light displays and attractions like Christmas figures made of scrap copper wire, a mini train ride for visitors, the Toy Town and a bazaar, among others.
I like the way the MERALCO creative team have used the scrap copper wires and old lines in giving them new lease as pieces of art works.
It looked like organic materials ( like cogon grass ) until you try to go near the nativity scenes.
There is also the nightly bazaar called dubbed Liwanag Bazaar were there are over 2 dozen stalls selling native delicacies like bibingka, puto bumbong, barbecue ,clothes, souvenir items, t-shirts , toys and accessories.
In recent years, the park has been recognized as a must-see Christmas destination in the metropolis.
