Cabarosak Park is built on 3 levels. On the first level, you’ll find the parking area, the entrance, the picnic huts, a barbecue area, toilet facilities, the hanging bridge crossing over a creek, a water fountain, a fish pond and botanic garden. On the second level is the Dining Hall which is screened from mosquitoes and flies. It has bamboo seats, tables and even washing facilities. On the third level, you’ll find a play area with swings, see-saw and monkey bar for the children to enjoy. There’s also a 4-storey view deck that provides a spectacular 360-degree views around Talakag, including the sky, mountains, farms and banana trees as far as your eyes can see.
For a while Cabarosak Park was our best kept secret as we wanted to keep the place to ourselves. It’s a nice and quiet place to enjoy a picnic, read a book, or even a short siesta. Jim and I love going up there during the week (weekends can be crowded nowadays). In as much as I love showing my friends and visitors around Talakag, I have only just recently started to share Cabarosak Park with them. After this post, I doubt whether it’s going to be our best kept secret for long.
