ZAMBOANGA CITY, March 19 -– The much-awaited musically gyrating fountain at Paseo del Mar will have its soft opening Tuesday night, providing residents and visitors with an alternative attraction site.

Mayor Celso Lobregat will spearhead the soft opening event which will coincide with his 64th birthday celebration.

Zamboanga Archbishop Romulo Valles will officiate the blessing of the facility.

The Paseo del Mar musically gyrating fountain is one of the three fountain projects of the city government in line with its strengthened tourism promotion campaign.

The laminar shooting jets fountain, established at the Jardin Maria Clara at Pasonanca park was unveiled last September 26 and the multi-patterned fountain at the Plaza Pershing was inaugurated with Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez as guest of honor last Oct. 11.

For several nights the past days, the Paseo del Mar fountain has been put to test run, attracting hundreds of people visiting the park.

Most of them expressed awe and admiration to the facility and are grateful that the city government has initiated such a project.

Most of them say the Paseo fountain will be another tourist attraction not only for the residents but for out of town visitors as well.

Lobregat said the musically gyrating fountain forms part of this city’s massive infrastructure projects.

The musically gyrating fountain at Paseo del Mar is only one of the improvements being done at the park.

Other projects are also on-going like the construction of the multi-purpose exhibit building, expansion of parking space, and the soon to be constructed natural aquarium. (PNA)
