zamboanga city sports complex (grandstand)
Assemblyman Joaquin F. Enriquez Memorial Complex - A sports complex of 57,500 square metres considered one of the most modern in the country. Ten contractors and 1,500 workers joined hands to complete the facility in time for the March 6, 1992 Palarong Pambansa (National Games). Total construction cost was a little over P64-million. The latest synthetic rubberized coating known as Super AG was used for the oval, only the second in the world after one in Saudi Arabia.
Although now some portions of the oval is already in bad shape... this cant be used for any race anymore.... But most of the complex's facilities are still useful...the basketball courts were recently renovated.
This had become our jogging haven here...must keep the jogging habit going!
I've noticed regular joggers, i just hope there'll be an initiative to have marathons in Zamboanga too! :)
