Olongapo City “Falls in Love”
In the aspiration to advance and promote Olongapo City as one central Luzon’s tourism hubs, the city government is not only rehabilitating the city’s parks and plazas but is also classifying and reliving different potential tourist spots in the city.
“Because of its rich forest reserves and terrains, the city hides undiscovered wonders that can be considered as tourist spots. One among these is the East Bajac-Bajac waterfalls or what we now call as Falls in Love,” said Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.
Thru Ordinance No. 18 (series of 2009), the Olongapo City Council named the waterfalls at 26th St. Brgy. East Bajac-Bajac as “Falls in Love” to distinguish the natural beauty of the scenery and to include it to the city’s tourism zones.
“Thru the classification and rehabilitation of Olongapo City’s natural attractions, we can boost the tourism industry and at the same time generate income for the populace residing near the tourism spots. We just have to practice community-based sustainable development wherein the residents who dwell in close proximity to the tourism zones will lead the preservation and protection of the natural wonders because these areas can be their source of livelihood and jobs,” Mayor Gordon explained.
