Carcar City, a developing city in the beautiful province of Cebu. The city stands as the shoe capital in Cebu Province because of its long history as Cebu province premier footwear manufacturer. Aside from this, Carcar has also been very popular because of its delicious Lechon (roasted pig). Because of this, the city has captured the hearts of many Cebuanos and visitors passing by.
And now, as Carcar continues to flourish, they have opened and established several spots that many should look out for. That includes Carcar’s newest City Hall, their newest Public Market, and their newest Sports Complex. These are places that you should visit when you go to Carcar aside from checking out their craftmanship on shoes and their mouth-watering Lechon.
Carcar City opens their Newest Sports Complex to the Public
Many Cebuanos, most especially people living in Carcar City, have been very excited about the city’s newest gem. On December 15, 2021, the city has finally opened the doors of the newest sports complex to the public with congratulatory messages from some of Carcar city’s known personalities.
The program started with a message from Carcar City’s Vice Mayor, Hon. Nicepuro L. Apura. It was then followed with a message from the upcoming Congresswoman of Cebu Province, Hon. Rhea Gullas.
And of course, the day won’t be completed without hearing a message from the people behind the success of the city’s newest sports complex, Carcar City’s Mayor, Hon. Mercedita Apura. And Cebu’s Governor, Gwendolyn Garcia.
To make the day exciting, live performances were also shown from our ever-talented Carcaranons. That also includes the City of Carcar’s participants when they won the previous Pasigarbo sa Sugbo with their Kabkaban Festival.
The day ended with fireworks and smiles seen in the faces of Carcaranons. The opening of Carcar’s Newest Sports Complex will surely make the city livelier as this will open a lot of opportunities, especially for sports enthusiasts. Now, we can look forward that the Central Visayas Regional Athletic Association (CVIRAA) Meet might happen here anytime soon.
Things to Know about Carcar City New Sports Complex
The project started last May 27, 2018. It was expected to have been finished in 1 year but due to suspension and extension, it then lasted for three years. The total area is 4.6 hectares which include the fence. But if we’re talking about the oval alone, that would be 1.3 hectares.
An amount of Php 264,788,000 was allocated for this project. And the construction of this project has also been made possible by QM Builders.
Carcar City New Sports Complex consists of an Oval, Grandstand, Soccer Field, an Olympic size swimming pool, and a diving pool (which will still be for proposal). With these being present, we can really expect sports events to happen here.
The intention of the new Sports Complex is for public use but maybe soon, there will be an entrance fee. But we do not need to worry about this as I think, this will still be affordable to many.
Upcoming and Future Projects of Carcar City
The fast growth of the city does not stop with this as their government has still many plans and projects to do. An ongoing 2.3 hectares (bus) terminal amounting up to Php200,000,000 and an upcoming Livestock Auction Market that will cost Php150,000,000.
