Gap Farm and Resort Davao


The Gap Farm Memory Lane

When I was a kid, my parents would regularly bring me and my sister to anywhere in the city on Sunday afternoons. Yes, we were kind of rich back then and we can afford a weekly vacation. Now, we’re still rich but we kind of got matured to not spend money on useless things.

 That was a joke, of course. But, the thing about me being brought to many places in Davao City is true. I could still clearly remember what my favourite place was. It was the Gap Farm.

Gap Farm is located at Diversion Road, Ma-a, Davao City. It has a very wide area of green grass and trees and man-made sculptures and infrastructures. Entrance fee of Php 40.00 and Pools Fee is Php 50.00

When we first went there, I was anxious to go as there was a very huge sculpture of a farmer riding a carabao in the entrance part. It scared the hell out of me! I couldn’t remember what my parents did that time. All I could remember was that we were already inside.

Inside, well, it is a farm if I would have to define farm as a large expanse of green land. Like many children, I was already contented when there is a playground. They did have a playground! I was with some of my kid friends with their parents there so we played and played until we ran out of breathe. You can’t blame us, we’re young. You might even be guilty of such.

Another interesting part in the farm is that they have sections there with life-sized sculptures of animals and Filipino mythical creatures. I enjoyed with the animal sculptures. I don’t want to go back to the memory with the mythical creature sculptures.

There was also a pool and it was a big one, not Olympic-sized but enough to make you feel cool on a hot weather.

Our time there was made perfect because of the picnic food we brought. I seriously think that Gap Farm is the perfect place to have a picnic and bond with your family. The location is also perfect because it is a little elevated and the wind is breezy. So, even on a hot summer day, you won’t feel hot because there is wind blowing every now and then.

It took 14 years for me to go back to Gap Farm and while I was expecting that things would change drastically, it did not. Everything pretty much stayed the same. The only difference I noticed was that they already had a functioning restaurant that serves good food.

Gap Farm is most probably the perfect place for family and friends bonding. I think Gap Farm is here to stay. As long as there are families who want to bond, it is here to stay.
