Guimbal Public Plaza an open public space centrally located in the heart of the coastal municipality of Guimbal in the province of Iloilo, Philippines. It is one of the notable landmarks of the municipality, known for its beautiful ornamental plants and landscapes that adorn its premises, described by many as the little Luneta of the province.
I went here at 3 p.m. on August 30, 2013 with my old office mates, Aileen, Chenie, and Lindsay right after visiting Garin Farm. This was during my first time in Iloilo, the 25th province on my list.
Situated at the northeeastern side of Guimbal Public Plaza is the Guimbal Hospital, on the southern side is the amphitheater and Guimbal Municipal Hall, on its west is Guimbal Church, and on its northwest is the Guimbal Gymnasium.
