  • A park this lush is so rare in Makati! Walk through it during a busy day and feel instantly relaxed. They recently placed a little pond in it.
  • It was great to be instantly away from the crowded streets of Makati. There are some nice tropical trees. They are described as well.
  • It is a small but nice park to relax in.
  • Beautiful nature park in the middle of a busy city. I literally feel as if i have walked out of the concrete jungle and into the real jungle. Definitely one of my favorite places to de-stress after a crazy day at the office :)
  • Great park! Maintained by Ayala. Note that is a private park open to the public up to 10PM. Weekends are a bit noisy with group of people coming from nearby church staying for a picnic at the park.
