We envision Barangay Bangcud as a Tourist Destination of Malaybalay City with united, well-educated, healthy and God fearing people living in a diversified farming and environment friendly economy that embraces modern Information Technology, ecologically balanced, peaceful, drug-free and protected environment under a flexible and honest leadership sustaining good governance.
Bangcud is a place surrounded by two rivers, the Sawaga River that runs from north to east and the Manupali River traversing from west to south. Aside from the two rivers, two crystal springs also sprout at the heart of the place. These are the Matin-ao and Nasuli Springs.
Bangcud was first a Sitio of Mailag and became a regular barangay in 1935. The name Bangcud was derived from the word “Bangko” meaning chair, referring to a big stone formed like a chair in Manupali River. It was discovered by travelers, who stopped and took a rest during night time.
Bangcud transformed into a modern paradise due to its coolest springs and shady trees and realized as a potential place for tourism in the later years.
