Ilocos Norte LGU considers enhancing the eco-park to draw tourists
In order to draw in more visitors, the municipality of Vintar in the province of Ilocos Norte plans to upgrade and add more amenities to its eco-tourism nature park.
The Umok ni Siwawer Eco-Tourism Environment Park in Barangay Parparuroc, which is around 46 kilometers from this city, has attracted a lot of picnickers and nature enthusiasts since 2019 up until the pandemic prohibited human movement.
The development of the natural park will get underway early this year as one of the local revenue streams of the municipality through the collection of entrance and rental fees of sporting facilities, according to Mayor Richard Degala in an interview on Friday.
Degala stated that a new structure that would house overnight accommodations for tourists to the area will be built, along with a coffee shop, a swimming pool, and new cottages with outdoor overhead showers.
The tourism project will be one of his administration’s priorities to help create more jobs for the residents, said Degala, who added that it will be built in phases.
The Vintar administration also intends to build a food park, where people may unwind and enjoy the natural ambiance while facing lush mountains and the spotless Bislak river.
Other sporting facilities, including a Surfline, all-terrain vehicle (ATV), hydro cycle water bike, floater, zurball, and kayak, are also available for tourists to check out in addition to a bike zipline. These amenities can be rented or purchased for a charge ranging from PHP50 to PHP1,000.
The park is open from Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is staffed by members of the local administration.
