Eden Nature Park Celebrates 20 Years

Written by Ria Jose

A lot of travelers visit Davao to getaway from their bustling busy lives because in this city you can literally go from downtown to the mountains (or to the beach) in just a few hours. And one of the most popular destinations is a mountain resort that offers both adrenaline-pumping adventure and calming relaxation in a cool climate, Eden Nature Park and Resort. This year, Eden Nature Park celebrates 20 years of being one of the top resorts in Davao.

Since it opened in October 1997, Eden has captured the hearts and imagination of DavaoeƱos and tourists, alike. It opened with offers of day tours and guided tours around its expansive 80-hectare property. It became a popular choice for locals touring their visiting family and friends around Davao. With its picturesque views and proximity to nature, Eden also became one of the most desired venue for weddings, seminars, retreats, and special events.

Eden Nature Park Amenities and Facilities

Eden has various attractions and amenities that is sure to delight guests of all ages and interests. The resort boasts of four food and beverage outlets that serve buffet meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and various ala carte options. Their F&B outlets highlight their fresh produce and artisan sauces and condiments. You can also get your fill of Aling Foping’s Halo-Halo at Eden.

For nature lovers and gardeners, Eden has sprawling gardens that feature various flora such as herbs, vegetables, and popular endemic flowers. Large trees, endemic animals, and domesticated animals also inhabit the park.

Another attraction of Eden is the Cultural Village that displays and highlights the Indigenous Tribes and cultures of Mindanao. On display are traditional houses and cultural artifacts. A local group of dancers welcome visitors with a music and dance presentation.

Other park facilities include a pool, a fishing village, and a butterfly house.

To fully enjoy these facilities, we suggest you take the guided shuttle tour. Or, if you are the more adventurous type, pack your comfy shoes and get a hiking trail map from the lobby. You can explore more of Eden’s more rustic and rugged areas while trekking.
