Buwakan ni Alejandra is a 700-square-meter garden conveniently situated on the Cebu Transcentral Highway, about an hour from the heart of Cebu City. It is home to a variety of flower plants and features approximately 200 kinds of flora and fauna.
The attraction is named after Eleuterio Gentap's mother-in-law. As a councilman in the barangay, Gentap also serves as the flower garden's landscaper. The word "buwak" translates as "flowers" in Cebuano, the predominant language spoken and used in the Visayas. Thus, "buwakan" comes to mean "flower garden."
Visiting Buwakan ni Alejandra is a guaranteed way to unwind from the capital.
If you’re coming from Cebu Cit, go to Ayala Center Cebu Terminal and then ride a van going to Balamban via Transcentral highway route. Tell the driver to drop you off at Buwakan ni Alejandra.
This natural park is open from 7 AM to 5 PM.
There is a minimum entrance fee for both adults and children.
