  • Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center located in Diliman QC is 22.7 hectares big and was first opened to the public in 1954. While its aim to offer temporary refuge to confiscated, rescued, sick and ...  more »
  • The park pond is leafy, overgrown trees make you forget the hustle and bustle of the city adjacent to Quezon Memorial circle, Lung Cancer Center, Pediatric Center. Admission was necessary but my senior so free. Still quite low as was I. Went for a family picnic on Sunday were disappointing. I think many weekdays, more relaxed and welcoming. Zoo animal cage and had been bred as an eagle. Visit, don't be disappointed. Even the parking lot.

  • This is a beautiful little tranquil facility in the middle of a bustling chaotic megalopolis. The organization advocates for the preservation of the environment and educates the public about the ecological balance in which wildlife is a critical part. This is also a gorgeous park for kids and adults alike. There was a GMA crew shooting a scene for what looked like a soap opera or something. The Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center also provides a great setting for films...
  • Very good place to rest. Lots of trees. You can bring your child/children and let them run and play. Fresh air. And there is a facility good for photoshoot ( Garden of Praise Makeup Room).
  • It is a nice place to go with families and friends. Many trees and animals, I know nature lovers will enjoy the place. When I went there, I saw some photographers having their photo shoot in random places inside the park. Before you enter the park, you need to pay an entrance fee, more or less 30 pesos.
  • It's a great place to visit if you're looking to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city, without actually leaving the city. Majority of the place was quiet, and I saw families having picnics, people doing photo shoots, etc. Price was reasonable. Entrance fee was Php30 per adult, Php45 parking fee. There are also a lot of places to buy snacks from, so don't worry if you failed to pack your picnic basket. Just show up with your best "panlatag" and you can have your own picnic there. Trash bins were accessible too, so don't forget to clean up after you're done with your picnic. I'm sure the people there are doing their best to take care of the animals, but there's really room for improvement in terms of caring for all the animals. Overall, great place to visit, especially for families. You can even make it your personal weekly/monthly getaway. I'll definitely go back there.
  • It's really great, peaceful, windy (depends), and it's full of nature. Really great, I suggest you take a 'walk in a park' here.
