A PRE-ODETTE POST
With economic activities steadily rising in Cebu City, it isn’t surprising that a lot of areas outside the city are also stepping up their game. One of these said areas is the City of Naga in the South. Located just thirty minutes from Cebu City, Naga is neatly situated away from the hustle of the big city but also close enough for both business and leisure.
New Naga City
The City of Naga recently decided to upgrade its community stage which can be found inside its central open field. From looking really simple and usual, the new stage is very modern and artistic.
On the northern end of their leisure and lifestyle complex, the city has set up a special area. Here, locals and visitors alike can munch on well-loved local favorites while also enjoying an excellent view of the ocean.
Across the food park, a newly-constructed bridge leads to yet another exciting development.
What you are looking at is (what appears to be) a brand new reclamation project. If this is indeed one, we can only expect bigger things for the city.
At the heart of the complex is the old City Hall. The building has since been renovated and is now the city museum called Museo Naga.
Pasilong sa Naga
Aside from the marine boardwalk, the most exciting part of the entire complex is probably the Pasilong sa Naga. Designed by the world-renowned furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue, Pasilong sa Naga is a reimagination of the city’s well-visited plaza.
From the looks of it, Pasilong sa Naga is a mix of both modern and old elements. This is definitely a great representation of where the city is going.
Pasilong sa Naga features wide walkways as well as big open spaces that visitors can enjoy.
Smack dab in the middle of the development is this Cobonpue centerpiece. This artistic sculpture features an elevated walkway and a fountain.
Pasilong sa Naga is located right next to the city museum and is open from Tuesdays to Sundays.
The Pasilong sa Naga is located right across the central open field and is facing the famous Marine Boardwalk.
So which of the new changes in Naga City are you most excited about? Let us know what you think!
