Transcript of National Parks Development Committee

NPDC is a useful government body, but it is under-functioning and many of the developments compromise the authenticity of the parks.
NPDC should be supported by UNESCO or similar heritage-handling organizations, since parks are crucial in urban areas
Assessment and Recommendations
• Performance of general maintenance work, preservation and beautification of assigned parks.

• Rehabilitation and development of assigned parks.

• Promotion of recreational, socio-cultural and educational programs and activities.

• Marketing and promotion of parks.

• Augmentation of the present security force of the agency.

The National Parks Development Committee (NPDC) was created by virtue of Executive Order No. 30 dated January 14, 1963 for the development of the Quezon Memorial Park, Fort Santiago, Luneta
Park and other national parks. In view of the tripartite agreement between the Quezon City Government, the National Historical Institute and the NPDC, the management of the Quezon Memorial
Park is now with the Quezon City Government while the maintenance of Fort Santiago is now with the
Intramuros Administration.

With the issuance of the Executive Order No. 120 on January 20, 1987, the Committee was attached to the Department of Tourism (DOT). It is responsible for the beautification, preservation, and maintenance of Rizal Park, Paco Park, Pook ni Mariang Makiling, and other satellite projects.
At present, the NPDC is tasked to develop, administer, and manage the Rizal Park in Ermita, Manila, the Paco Park in Paco, Manila and the Pook ni Maria Makiling Forest Park in Los Banos, Laguna.
