Magalong inspects ongoing development of dumpsite to eco-park

By Glen S. Ramos
BGUIO City – Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong yesterday inspected the ongoing construction at the open dumpsite located in Barangay Irisan which will soon be converted into a high-end eco-tourism park for tourists and residents alike.
The city government started to convert the long-abandoned 60-year-old open dump facility to an ecological forest park.

According to Magalong, P15 million was allotted for the project.

He added that structural engineers are regularly on-site maintaining the site’s stability to prevent further erosion.

Once completed, the park will provide a good view of the sunset in La Union. (ai/mtvn)
