The construction of Pasonanca Park started in 1912 by then governor of Mindanao John J. Pershing, who has a plaza named after him in the middle of downtown Zamboanga City.

Pasonanca Park Swimming Pools

The park has 3 public pools. It boasts an Olympic size swimming pool, a natural flowing pool and a children's pool with water slides. There are also lots of picnic areas.

Pictured here is the Pasonanca Kiddie Pool. Designed for children's safety. There are four water slides. The slide farthest to the right is for the beginner. The one farthest to the left is the fastest slide.

The water in the pool is not stagnant. It is constantly replenished by a surge of water naturally drained into the pool by gravity. As the water fills the pool it is also immediately drained to create a natural creek that flows down the hill.

The kiosks are available for rent for the whole day. Make your reservation. The pool supervisor can handle it for you.

Pasonanca Tree House

Originally constructed to be the "Youth Citizenship Training Center" in April of 1960 with the generous assistance of the city council. This Pasonanca Tree House is visited by thousands of visitor per year. For a minimum fee you can rent this tree house. Then you can boast to your friends that you spent the night in a tree house. It has all the amenities of a small motel room.
