• City of Manila

    Manila’s Last Green Haven

    One of the most unfortunate and frustrating aspects of Manila’s development in the last century is how rapid urbanization not only brought blight and decay to what were the city’s most prominent areas before but also shrank what was then a vast green space for the city’s urban lungs. Thankfully, there are still some green spaces one can still refuge, located right in the heart of the city itself, the Arroceros Forest Park.

    The Twin Parks of Legazpi Village

    Beyond the skyscrapers and the concrete structures that have been built all over the Makati CBD, and in the Legazpi Village area in particular, it is good to know that the provisions for needed green open spaces that help serve as natural lungs for a congested central business district have not been neglected. And in the case of Legazpi Village, the area itself is served with not just one, but two public parks right in the heart of the district, catering to the different needs of its residents and others who visit there.
