NORTHERN Samar Governor Edwin Ongchuan led the reopening of the scenic Lalaguna Mangrove Eco Park (LMEP) in Barangay San Isidro, Lavezares for tourism activities Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

“The development of Lalaguna Mangrove Eco Park aims to create livelihood and other social enterprise opportunities to the community surrounding the Lalaguna Bay while at the same time promote environmental protection and management,” the provincial government said.

The park, which offers new attractions with the completion of its receiving area and the Kaluy-ahan trail and view deck, can be reached through a 30-minute motorboat ride from the Lavezares port.

A maximum of 100 visitors is allowed to enter the park.

According to the provincial government, responsible visitation is being promoted by the LMEP management to preserve its natural state and protect the environment.

The Lalaguna Mangrove Eco Park is within the protected area, it added.
