Siesta Sa Carmen Town Plaza

One of the nicest town plazas in the North is the Carmen town plaza. The park has benches, playgrounds, fountains and a relaxing view of the sea. The plaza, facing the Carmen Municipal Building, can be seen right along the north national highway. The plaza is perfect for high noon strolls and chats as huge trees shade most of the benches. And it’s also quite interesting to note that a lot of teenagers frequent this plaza at noon because the cool breeze and the relaxing shade makes it a perfect spot for non-stop texting and chats.

One of the several slides that litter the grounds of the park.

The focal point of the plaza is this statue of a mermaid that is carrying a huge shell and sitting in the middle of a fountain. Also note that it is surrounded by dolphins.

One interesting feature of the fountain are the six dolphins that squirt out water from their mouth.
