  • The area as of January 12,2018 is well maintained. There are public comfort rooms in pristine condition despite habing opened for a few months. Jogger and fitness bods alike can exercise in peace without the trouble of buzzling people here and there
  • A beautiful little quiet garden in the heart of Makati's business district. Great for taking a break from the stress of work. I just wished it were bigger. Parks are rare in Metro Manila so this is a gem.
  • Beautiful, great for walks. Quiet places. Nature in Manila!
  • Nice place to unwind in the heart of busy makati. Still in its renovating stage
  • It's a Japanese themed park, named as Washington S. Park to honour the late founder of AIM
