The court is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Visitors are required to follow health protocols such as wearing of face mask and face shield.

Well-loved wherever he went, Bryant was a frequent visitor in the Philippines. His last trip in the country was in June 2016 just two months after his final NBA game where he scored 60 points.

Bryant played 20 seasons in the NBA—all for the Lakers. He won five championships.
