The Valenzuela People's Park, officially the Valenzuela City People's Park and also known to local residents as simply People's Park or VCPP, is an urban community park located in the city of Valenzuela, Philippines. It is built beside the Valenzuela City Government Center and the Valenzuela Town Center. The construction of this 1.5-hectare park was started in 2014 and was formally opened to the public on February 14, 2015, during the 17th Valenzuela City Charter Day.[1][2]
