Riverwalk/ JICA Flood Mitigation Project
These river control structures along Anilao and Malbasag Rivers gave
way to the rivers
new facade. After the Ormoc Tragedy in 1991, this grants-in-aid project
of the Japan Government was constructed in 2001 with almost P1.0 billion
in budget and nearly P300 million from the Philippine government. The
project aimed to provide sufficient protection against floods and ensure
safety of Ormocanons living near the river and in the city proper. The
walkway along the length of the structure was transformed into a riverwalk
in 2006, with concrete slabs lining the pavement turning the walkway into
a river park where people can stroll and enjoy the river view. Elegant
lampposts were also installed for nighttime illumination creating a relaxed
and laid-back atmosphere.
Saints Peter and Paul Parish Church
The oldest church in the city was constructed way back in 1556 when the
Jesuit missionaries first set foot in Ormoc. This marked the prelude to
centuries of Christian evangelization in Ormoc. Ogmoc

independence from Hilongos on Nov. 12, 1784. A month after Ormoc became
a municipality on Feb. 26, 1834, the Ormoc Catholic Parish with Saints
Peter and Paul as its patron was formally inaugurated.
The church had recently undergone a major renovation in preparation of
being converted into a cathedral. The church golden main altar

more churchgoers and devotees.
