The Cotabato City is rapidly developing from 2019 to present, as it is currently the seat of government of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. We recently had city stoplights, which makes the traffic management relatively easier. Cotabato City also recently had 4 playing courts for ball games at the city hall compound, which is accessible to all interested to play ball games. The amphitheater at the heart of the city holds zumba sessions every morning, and other cultural and organizational activities.
