Gaston Park in CDO (Dancing Fountain)

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. -

This park eventually became an execution ground for Spanish criminals turned later into a training ground for the local revolutionaries during the American occupation. It has been redeveloped in recent years, with the worn grass being replaced by red tiles. In December 2015, the long-awaited Musical Fountain started running after some delays. -Wikipedia
