In the heart of uptown Cebu City is a rotunda park with a picturesque fountain in the center. This is the famous Fuente Osmeña Circle. Fuente Osmeña, or literally “Osmeña Fountain,” was named after the Cebu's Grand Old Man, President Sergio S.
Osmeña, Sr., who happened to be the second president of Philippine Commonwealth.

The rotunda, which principally features the Osmeña fountain, is said to have been built during the inauguration of the City’s water system. Inside the Fuente
Osmeña Circle is a big fountain and around it is a skating rink enclosed in a metal fence.

The back of the postcard reads:
Osmeña Park, Cebu City, Philippines
