Children’s area reopens but rehab will continue
by Harley Palangchao

The Children’s Playground at Burnham Park finally opened Wednesday morning after a series of criticisms from concerned quarters due to alleged poor quality of materials used and due to the snail-paced completion of the repair works.

Mayor Reinaldo Bautista Jr. who graced the opening of the facility together with city and barangay officials and members of the Baguio Centennial Commission, appealed for concerned individuals to set aside further criticisms and instead help in improving further the facility.

The facility has long been neglected until children heaved a huge sigh of relief when the time capsule for the rehabilitation facility was buried in the ground last May 27, 2008. The first phase of the rehabilitation was supposed to be completed within 111 working days but the calendar was not strictly followed. 

Earlier this year, the group of Bishop Carlito Cenzon expressed dismay over the snail-paced development of the facility even as it reported recently some flaws in the repair works.

City councilor Perlita Chan-Rondez, chair of the city council committee on parks, turned emotional as she tried to fight back tears but eventually cried while she was delivering her speech. 

She said concerned officials and employees were relieved that the facility was finally opened after she and officials of the City Environment and Parks Management Office were bombarded with criticisms. 

The lady officials, meanwhile, admitted there are a lot of improvement works to be carried out in the future. 

Cenzon, for his part, said they would inspect and evaluate the materials used by the contractor within the facility to ensure the safety and protection of the children and to ensure the facility is “child-friendly.”

Cenzon and his group earlier requested the city government to cancel the Children’s Playground contract and have it awarded to a more qualified contractor to ensure quality standard.
