    I remember, we had our photoshoot for our ID's inside the park, it was a fun experience. It's amazing how a mini forest just pops out in the middle of Makati. The best part is the music. I once walked inside the park and then came the song Beauty and the Beast, it gave me a Disney feeling. There were lizards, birds and fishes. It was perfect.

    Walk towards the bridge just behind the Corinthian parking lot area and you'll find a quite place to relax and unwind. The area is planted with bamboos where you can sit and enjoy the calmness of the area.
