Gaston Park

Named after a pre-war Municipal Mayor of Cagayan de Oro, Segundo Gaston, the park is located near the St. Augustine Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace. Gaston Park was the main plaza of Cagayan de Misamis  during  the  Spanish  colonial period. It served as the training ground of local patriots during the Philippine-American War. Later it became the site of the Battle of Cagayan de Misamis on April 7, 1900. A National Historical Institute marker was placed in the park  in 2000.

On one side of the park, the one near San Agustin Cathedral, a marker was erected in memory of Kagay-anons who lost their lives when Typhoon Sendong heaped its fury on the city back in December of 2011.

Another marker that you will find at Gaston Park is the Siete de Abril marker, which is a summarized account of the events that took place during the Labanan sa Cagayan de Misamis. (Source)
