Greenbelt Park: The “Green Oasis” of Manila

by | Feature, Lifestyle

When OFWs picture Manila, they are always reminded of the city life – the traffic, the buildings, the crowds of people, and the whole hustle and bustle of the streets. These sights are the reason why Greenbelt Park is a welcome sight for those who want to experience nature in the middle of the busy city. TripAdvisor shares a few of the insights of visitors who have visited the “Green Oasis” of Manila.

A Beautiful Garden

Most of the visitors marvelled at the sights of Greenbelt Park’s lush greeneries. jamescL6810XF from Glendale said that although the area might be surrounded with retail shops and restaurants, the garden is “a tranquil escape” with “lush plants and flowers”. Brian F. adds to this by saying that the park is a “rare treasure” since Manila has few green spaces. “The landscaping is gorgeous, and the open-air chapel has been a lovely centerpiece in the park for decades. The Greenbelt mall surrounds the park, and it offers all of the mid and upper end shopping and dining you cold want,” said Brian F.

The Original Sanctuary of Makati

People who visit the park also take time to stroll as they enjoy the scenery. ligayadiwata says that the park is a great place to contemplate as the park was already here even before the Ayala Triangle Gardens was formed. “While it’s now surrounded by restaurants, and the chapel has become a permanent immoveable fixture, it’s still a great place to stroll around and contemplate in,” said ligayadiwata.

A Nice Surprise

Lori M from Canada said that they found the place “by accident”. She adds that the place was “Beautifully done” and served as “a nice little oasis in the middle of the city.” zoruk adds that there’s a nice fishpond within the garden as well. “We were there in a nice timing, not so many people around. Loved the fishpond, and the koi fishes were a very nice touch, along with turtles. After enjoying the view we drank coffee and stayed to enjoy the view even more,” shares zoruk.
