  • The size of the park is perfect enough for a walk to step back a little. You can park around the area. There is police visibility. My kids loved the fishes. I loved the talk trees.  more »

  • A really lovely park this. Wonderful place for a sit in the shade. On a nice day in the mid 20s you could stay here quite happily for hours. Contains fine examples of the indigenous trees found in the philippines. Has a lovely garden in the back as well. Always worth a visit if you're sick of the busy mall
  • It'd been recently renovated. There's now a koi pond. Pebble walk. Bamboo structures. Tree path. All of which makes for a better park.
  • 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.
  • 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.
