- Manila City is continuously progressing with the help of the well lauded Mayor Isko Moreno
- His hard work and will to make Manila great again is evident with the progress of the city in just a few months
- The city engineer's office is still finalizing details and costs, and has yet to set a target date for the completion of makeover of the park
Mayor Isko Moreno started his 1,600-hectares of green space project in the city through the once-neglected park near his office.
"How can I ask others to clean their areas when the city hall can't even clean its own yard?" said Moreno.
The park is adorned with lights and will be constructed with additional facilities as reported by ABS-CBN News.
The makeover includes the building of a coffee shop for refreshments, a comfort room and upgrading the security outpost.
A dancing fountain will be constructed in front of the monument.
"It will serve as an additional attraction," said the Manila City Engr. Armand Andres.
Despite upgrades, there is "nothing spectacular" about the project, Moreno said.
"Simpleng paggo-gobyerno ito, nothing spectacular," said the well-loved mayor.
"We just need to create 1,600 hectares of green space in the next 3 years in the city of Manila."
Here are some of the netizens' reactions online:

Please do the same for the Manila Zoo, but make the animals your priority, put more emphasis on conservation and protection of species and not just make the park pretty for the people.
