    I positively sure it is "probably" open :clown:. You have to ask and pay in Jo's Chicken. The founder of the garden has passed on but the gardens were still kept up as of about 8 months ago.

    We went there a few years back. Very pretty place to visit if it is still open. I got a lot of very nice pics and my daughter and her friend/cousin really enjoyed themselves. I can imagine it is pricey to maintain. I hope it hasn't closed.

    Went there about 6 weeks ago. It's nice. It was a weekday morning and we were the only visitors on the premises. Just drove past again today and it appears to be still open. Buy your entrance fee at Jo's Chicken Inato across the street and they will send someone over to open the gate for you.

    Yes, it is definitely still open. And what a great place for those who seek solitude - I wish I could live there.

    Amazingly, the entrance fee of P100 per adult is the same as it was in 2007.

    There are views to the mountains and to Cebu. The gardens are well planted - not spectacular but serene. Small buildings and animal sculptures dot the gardens and the loo even has a seat!

    There is a covered dining area but not sure how to obtain permission to use it - I expect, if it is available for use, that users have to bring their own food. Anyone interested should enquire at Jo's Chicken Inato, across the National Highway, as that is where payment is made for entry fee to the gardens.

    There is also building work going on and it seems as if greater use for events may be intended (I am just guessing here).

    For anyone still looking for a 'bird' (not sure everyone may understand that meaning) there is one very lonely one there, as shown in the photos below.
