Litrato: Malasag, a Perfect Escape for the Body and Soul

Do you badly need a breather? Malasag isn’t just a place for recreation but it also serves as the lungs of Cagayan de Oro.

Its trees generates oxygen and absorbs carbon dioxide from factories and vehicles that emits smoke and heat in the city. It filters the air of Cagayan de Oro, a city that is highly urbanized and industrialized.

That is why, on summer, aside from the beaches of Opol, Malasag is another place to be. It is pleasantly cool where one can temporarily escape and detoxify from all the pollutants and noise in Downtown Cagayan de Oro. It is also the Kagayanons’ top choice to do station of the cross on Holy Week.
