Iligan City in the Philippines is commonly known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls. It has dozens of large and small waterfalls but the most notable are Maria Christina Falls and Tinago Falls, I will write another article about these falls later.
One beautiful and relaxing place in Iligan City is the “Maze Park”. Maze Park and Resort is known for its wide land area with animals such as Ostriches, Cows, Snakes, Monkeys, & Fishes. It has a couple of big swimming pools and small pools of different shapes. They got their water supply from the spring or “tubod (in Filipino)”.
Maze Park is a “Nature” themed Park. It has several different areas with different designs to choose from so anyone who’s been there usually has a variety of pictures taken by their cameras. It has a fishing park, but I believe they no longer allowed people to get some fish from the pond at the moment. It’s OK to feed the fishes with bread but touching the water or teasing the fishes is not allowed. There are lots of Plants and Flowers in the area such as “Santan”, “Gumamela”, “Roses”, and many more. Maze Park amenities include usage of Cottages, Grilling area, Function hall, Botanical Park, Mini Zoo, Videoke machine at P5.00 per song and a lifeguard.
Together with my wife Lisa, my immediate family, and some friends agreed that Maze Park and Resort is indeed the perfect getaway place for those who loves nature. It is located in Mimbalot Buru-un around 11 kilometers away from the city proper. We went there using the multicab of my Father in-law’s friend. But if you don’t have any personal transportation, from the City Proper just take a Buru-un route jeepney, then ask the driver to drop you off the place where you can ride a motorcycle that will take you to Maze Park and Resort. The estimated minimum traveling cost by jeepney from City Proper to Buru-un is P12.00/each. If you want to reach Maze Park faster, you can ride a taxi/cab going to Buru-un at a minimum fare of P100. The admission fee for both adults and children is P25.00 per head.
