Yesterday we went to Picnic groove we got disappointed of the traffic and the facilities of Picnic groove. We hate the tricycle drivers they keep ignoring us they don't want to drop us to picnic groove because of the traffic, we know that it is not the reason they choosing there passengers. If only we have a car but sad to say we are not that rich to have one. It was horrible yesterday I thought we going to enjoy the place but we are not the facilities are needs renovation. Like the hanging bridge for example it needs repair. It's need further renovation and amenities, I'm sure yesterday they earn really big because there's a lots of people who went there. What do you think guys are you agree with me.

hi agv! i haven't been to tagaytay for ages so i wouldn't know first-hand how bad it is. however, knowing ou rpenchant for taking things for granted, i can see your point. i think the local government as well as concerned citizens should really go out of their way to improve the facilities of establishments such as picnic groove and people's park. the same can be said about the other parks we have here in the country. some parks are privatized and these are well-maintained and improved on but these parks would charge fees to off-set the cost of improving the facilities and maintaining it. anyway, it really boils down to us who frequent these parks and places. if we want to enjoy the benefits of these places, we should take care of these places so that we make the most out of these places. just my .02. cheers!!!

Hi there abv0419! Each time I get to have the chance to go to Tagaytay, one of the places I would drop by at would be the Picnic Grove. This has been my practice since I was younger. It's sad to see that place to be in such a mess. It used to be a very nice place that attracted a lot of tourists. They should restore the place and improve other amenities or even introduce new amenities for that matter. Tourists should also be reminded of their role to play. They should be reminded of their discipline.
