D’ Family Park is situated in Talamban,Cebu City. It’s the first park of its kind in Cebu and within the MCWD 20-hectare property. It offers a different kind of recreation site for Cebuanos while also promoting the protection of flora and fauna. The person behind this project is Fr. Francisco G. Silva who is the former MCWD General Manager and funded by Congressman Raul del Mar. This recreational area was opened to public last May 8, 1999.

Within the 20-hectare property you could find a swimming pool (both for kids and for adults), picnic camp site, children’s playground, a mini zoo, multi function club house and a pavilion. And oh by the way, the children’s play ground has swings, see-saws, slides and others.

Also the park has a large stage equipped with sound system and in front of it is a huge open field big enough to hold events such as ball games. The park even has a jogger’s path along the side of concrete road from the gate of MCWD and a kiosk structured for those who enjoys watching the serenity of greeneries.

The park also has a big lake which actually is one of the main attractions on the area. Everybody just loves to sit down on the benches around, chatting and just having fun. For some, it is a complete relaxation. There is just one thing missing on a lake, small boats or swan boats.

The place is perfect for a Sunday afternoon stamping ground. You could bring blankets along with some foods and your family.
