Sadly, homage isn't synonymous with maintenance, and slabs of this concrete structure are starting to fall piece by piece. Nearby is an open-air amphitheater that’s seen better days. This could very well be Davao’s smaller version of Central Park’s Delacorte Theatre in New York had there been artistic programs that would support this medium, but of course, I am wishful thinking.
Teens are seen practicing their dance moves nearby, while the sea breeze billows through leaves of grass (move over, Walt Whitman).
