Bulacan's mini forest park converted to "Hardin ng Sining at Bayani"

City of Malolos (16 November) -- The Bulacan Provincial Government recently turns a simple park known as "mini forest park" into a newest tourist attraction with stars featuring some of the province's pride, lights, pathways and creative landscape of various species of plants.

The former mini forest was renovated and inaugurated to become "Hardin ng Sining at Bayani" with a "walk of fame" attraction featuring marbled stars and hand mark of renowned personalities in the arts, both visuals and performing.

Even before, the park located in front of the capitol building has been a favorite destination for students and families but Provincial Government officials believe that the improved look of the park will lure more sightseers.

The inauguration was done recently with the attendance of some popular Bulakeños who had their hand mark beside their star. These include Jolina Magdangal from Norzagaray, Rey Valera from Meycaucayan, Virgilio Almario from City of Malolos, Roxanne Barcelo from Calumpit and Cheryl Cosim from Hagonoy.

The stars in the province's Walk of Fame embody the names of Bulakeño heroes, national artist awardees, Gawad Dangal ng Lipi and Gintong Kabataan winners, both are annually conferred by the Provincial Government to its outstanding sons and daughters who made it big in the fields of arts and culture.

Arman Sta. Ana, assistant department head of the Provincial Youth, Sports, Employment, Arts and Culture Office, said the province will ensure that the stars in the walk of fame will be augmented each year to recognize and honor Bulakeños who continue to bring pride to the province especially in culture and arts.

Sta. Ana noted that this project was made possible through the help of German Moreno who also initiated the walk of fame in Eastwood, Libis, Quezon City.

Because of his valuable support, Governor Joselito Mendoza instructed the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to pass a resolution to make Moreno an "adopted son of Bulacan." (PPAO/PIA Bulacan) [top]
