Don Francisco Ortigas Jr. Road (former Emerald Avenue), Pasig, Philippines
There was a seminar I attended at Ortigas Center last weekend. During the break, I walked around the area because I was sooo bored. I ended up stumbling upon this wonderful park located in between buildings. It was just a refreshing sight!
The 1,590 square meter park was developed by Ortigas & Company to celebrate its 75 years of existence. It was opened to the public last December 2005.
The mural design portrayed the history of Ortigas & Company & the people behind it. The artist used objects & symbols that described the success of their business.
This is really a great place to hangout! I read that it was meant for employees, visitors and shoppers to just chill out and rest. It is a great place to escape the office ambiance & all the stress you feel during work hours. And yes, I think the beautiful landscape really does have that effect. Hey, I found it to be a great place to pass the time!
Aside from the beautiful scenery, the park has a coffee shop that serve drinks & food. There is a stage where some shows are held occasionally. A perfect place to escape and relax 🙂
I do hope that Makati would have a place like this. More pictures of this beautiful park here.
