To serve the public better, the Panaad Park and Stadium in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City will be rehabilitated starting 2020 . Currently, the Negros Occidental provincial government has tightened the security inside the park. The park’s security division now limits the people going inside the premises and they only allow visitors during office hours. As per Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz, all vehicles heading inside the premises are also now being required to be registered at night.
One of the plans include the construction of a perimeter wall near a creek, situated at the far side of the park. All illegal structures inside the premises will also be cleared to maximize the area. The rehabilitation will start with the repair of the facility’s track. A parking area will also be constructed inside the compound as per Diaz.
Diaz also revealed that this coming 2023, Negros Occidental will host the Regional Athletics Meet and Palarong Pambansa. Thus, this rehabilitation project is part of the province’s preparations for the said national sports event. He also stressed that private organizations are still allowed to use the facilities during the rehabilitation but there must be a balance on the usage.
