Filinvest City’s Garden City recently opened Central Park—a new outdoor events and community center in Alabang where people can breathe fresh air, bask in nature’s greeneries while enjoy the company of family and friends.
“Filinvest City’s Central Park is designed to be a breathable and relaxing space where we can be active and enjoy the soothing effects of nature,” explained Don Ubaldo, first vice president for project development—townships.
He added that Filinvest City’s development of Central Park is part of its master plan to provide open spaces that seamlessly integrate nature with city living for a balanced lifestyle within the business district.
The first phase of Central Park, also called the “Great Lawn” is primed to be the convergence point in the city where the open spaces can accommodate al fresco events such as concerts, festivals, bazaars, pet shows, sports, and other related open-air events, especially now that pandemic restrictions ease in Metro Manila.
This summer, the whole community makes use of the one-hectare open space for picnics, biking, sports, and jogging. Visitors can also enjoy the installations found in the park, which include outdoor gym equipment for adults and playground for kids; bike rental services; Moovr PH E-scooters; fitness and sports activities such as Zumba sessions, Flag Football, and Frisbee among others; as well as food bazaar at Central Park’s “Eats by the Park”.
Live acoustic bands on Fridays and Saturdays are some of the special activities in the pipeline this summer.
Botanical garden in the works
Also set for completion on the third quarter of this year is the Botanical Garden, which will feature an amphitheater or dedicated events stage to set the landmark of the location.
Central Park is found in the Spectrum District of Filinvest City, Alabang, intersecting Spectrum Linear Park in Spectrum Midway, in between Commerce Avenue and Parkway Avenue in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
The park is just two minutes away from Festival Mall and three-minutes away from Filinvest Tollgate going to South Luzon Expressway, making the area accessible and easy to locate.
Other parks in the city where residents and guests can chill include the Spectrum Linear Park, the green spine traversing Spectrum Midway; River Park and Water Garden in Festival Mall; and Filinvest Axis Park in Northgate Cyberzone. A Creekside Park is set for completion in 2026.
