ILOILO RIVER ESPLANADE
Entrance Fee to Iloilo River Esplanade is free but if you want to join the Exercise Session (I believe done somewhere near Carpenter Bridge), you are encouraged to contribute at least Php20. The esplanade is a 1.2 kilometers stretch from Diversion Road to Carpenter Bridge along Iloilo River. It is a perfect place for health conscious individual for brisk walking, jogging, running, etc. but anybody can enjoy the place especially if one wants to kill boredom.
