Located at Misamis Oriental, Bansada Agri-Eco Adventure Park just recently opened their doors to the public last December 2020 amidst the pandemic crisis. Despite that, the park has managed to attract the attention of local tourists.
A flagship project of Sultan Kudarat’s Local Government Unit (LGU), the Bansada Agri-Eco Adventure Park was built with hopes of boosting the region’s tourism industry at the same time, using practices that are sustainable and eco-friendly. The P10 million budget proved to be worthy as the place managed to earn heaps of praises and awards since it opened.
One of the main attractions the adventure park offers include the the ATV-riding activity, where tourists and guests get to ride an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) around the park, altogether seeing the beauty of Bansada park.
The viewing deck of the adventure park is also a popular attraction, as it offers an overlooking view of Sultan Kudarat. The foggy and cold atmosphere also adds to that unique aesthetic most people are seeking as they take photos, all for the ‘gram. This proved to be a success as many netizens get enticed to visit Bansada.
Zip lines, zip bikes and cable cars are also additional fun activities that can be done in the park but as of the writing, developments are still to be made for them. The construction of a picnic and groove camp site, Bansada home-Stay, horseback riding, infinity pool where tourists can see the 180-degree view of the landscape of Sultan Kudarat province is also discussed.
Speaking of food, the park has its own in-house restaurant, Carlito’s Restaurant in the Sky. Serving both local and Western foods, the resto is a great place to eat at. Their best-sellers include: Crunchy Garlic Fried Chicken, Sotanghon Guisado, and Seafood Chopsuey. A fried lumpia for starters and a Carrot-Calamansi smoothie for healthy option. The overlooking view at the restaurant is also an added bonus.
The place has been recognized by award-giving bodies as one of the tourist attractions in the SOCKSARGEN region. One of them was Department of Tourism Region XII themselves who included the adventure park as one of the top 8 most visited tourist destinations in SOX in the year 2021.
