  • 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.
  • The place is awesome. I was surprised that there's a park in the middle of the city. It's beautiful.
  • Good place to rest on the way to Greenbelt. Or you can go there for a green atmosphere in the heart of the city Makati
  • Very nice to relax, very windy and there's a beautiful Japanese garden there.
