Project Details: Inspired from the Baywalk concept along Roxas Boulevard in Manila, Iloilo will be having it’s own 8km “Iloilo Boulevard” constructed, which will start from the back of Gaisano City in La Paz all the way to the New Carpenters Bridge in Brgy. Tabucan, Mandurriao
The Iloilo Boulevard also includes the construction of a riverside promenade along its length. The project seeks to revive the beauty and wealth of the Iloilo River, which is why Mayor Jerry Trenas has assured that the 3,000 mangrove trees growing at the bank of the river will be preserved.

The components of the project were once part of part of the Jalandoni Bridge Project and the Iloilo River Rehabilitation Project (IRRP). Later, it was included as components of the Iloilo Flood Control Project. The “Iloilo Boulevard” is listed under the medium-term development plans of the Iloilo City Government and will most probably be completed in 2010-2013.
