A news article said that DoT Secretary Bernadette Romulo Puyat has vowed to fund the proposed Burnham Park rehab to improve its current condition.


Earlier, the city council this week has approved the resolution approving the conceptual master development plan that aims to redevelop the 34-hectare Burnham Park. 

The resolution said that the popular park deserves improvement to be worthy of its prestigious designation as the United Nation's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Creative City.
