Good place for a walk, along restaurants. Much had been done to get this place looking as clean as it is. More work is needed to get the stench out, if it's there all the time.

When you are stressed or just wanted to have a good walk, Esplanade is a really a great place. It is an amazing place because the government had kept the place clean. You can have a good jog or a nice walk around it.

Iloilo is indeed a city that tries to blend the old with the new. Everywhere, we saw "development", looking like a better-running Manila. The Iloilo River is to Iloilo what the Pasig River is to Manila; but no, it couldn't be. There are people fishing...More

I've walked its full length once and up to about 1/2 several times, and it's quiet, pretty, and a real winner in a city that's alternately run down and very pleasant. The actual esplanade is well planned and meanders along the Iloilo River for about...More

The area is promising. Perfect for late night walks after a hard days work. I'm unsure if there are robbery incindents in the area. But, I'm certain that they need to have more roving guards and lamp posts.

The esplanade’s 1.2 km walk is fun!!! You get to see Iloilo’s locals and visitors alike as they savor the riverside breeze. I hope rivers in other cities are developed similarly- paging Pasig river managers.... I highly suggest Iloilo visitors to do the walk....

Love the park especially during morning... Nice to jog with family and friends while enjoying the river view. There are a lot of joggers starting from 5:30am until 9am.

I would recommend this for a lovely stroll and view of the river. The food/bar area are an added bonus.

I'm not positive if it is dog friendly. The Esplande is an open walk way around the river. There are no gates or entrances so I believe you can walk your dog there.
