Lamesa Ecopark

Manila, Philippines /

We were able to visit one of the greenest places around Metro Manila during our summer vacation. The place is quite near to hubby’s home (QC) – where we stay at when we’re at the Metro. It just took us longer to find it because we have to thread a village and the people we asked weren’t as helpful.



Anyway, the place is really green…lots of trees and greeneries. A big pool (which was unfortunately closed when we got there), small ponds, and a playground for kids are some of the featured amenities.


The place also has lots of color-coded trash cans .

We went nature tripping there but our main purpose was to horsebackride. ^_^ The kids requested for it when we were still at my mom’s place (Cavite). We even had a photoshoot for my kuya’s pre-nuptial photos opposite the Taal Vista Hotel but never got the chance to ride the horses. So to keep our promise we took them here for the experience.

They were each allowed a ride on a pony, all three really delighted. A ride costs 50 Php, I think. Had we the time, they could have had more rounds but rain was looming in so we had to leave soon.

I do recommend a visit to this park. It’s a diferent environment so to say for kids who are used in a busy, buzzling city. Though the park is in the city, the greeneries would make you think otherwise. It’s also a fun way to learn the names of the trees. They have those markers to certain trees and I remember Kakawate from my childhood, the trees we often pick the leaves of just because they’re abundant. (Now I know better of course, wouldn’t pick out the leaves anymore, hihi.)

  1. I have heard so much about this park but still have not had the chance to visit. I hope we have more time to explore next time we are in metro Manila.

  2. That’s a really good place to check out to be close to nature! 🙂

    I have several GREEN SCENES which I’ve captured while in motion. I hope you can visit me at my page! 🙂

  3. It is nice to know that there is still an EcoPark in the heart of Manila, I hope that they can maintain the park… I feel sorry that Ninoy Aquino Wildlife Park was in a sorry state 🙁

  4. wow, so nice. I wish i can try horse back riding too. Thanks for joining.
