La Mesa Eco Park
La Mesa Eco Park
It is quite interesting to find an ecological reserve within the metropolitan area of Manila (according to the newspaper website manilanews.ph). The La Mesa Eco Park is built within the boundaries of the La Mesa Watershed, the primary source of drinking water in the metro area. Around 12 million people depend on this watershed for drinking water. The La Mesa Eco Park was established to help promote ecological awareness and care for the watershed.
What to Expect in La Mesa Eco Park
Those who want to get away from the busy world of urban living can take a quick break in this ecological park. The park has a mini forest, a fitness trail, souvenir shop, pool and bath house, an ecological center, a paintball gaming field, and a lagoon where visitors can go for a boat ride.
The entry fee in La Mesa Eco Park is pretty cheap at Php 40. However, if you want to engage in other activities like boating, swimming (according to the surfing website surfing.la), or paintball gaming, you will have to pay the corresponding rental fees or corresponding entry fees for the special section you want to see or try. Given the rates, rental and entry fees in this ecological park won’t be that heavy on the pocket.
How to Get to La Mesa Eco Park
La Mesa Eco Park is located within the area of Quezon Manila. You need to get on a bus or FX that will ply along Commonwealth Avenue. Buses that have a signboard that says Fairview may get there but remember that there are buses that may have the same signboard that will take an alternate route. Just ask the bus conductor if they will pass by East Fairview Subdivision. If they will go by there then get on that bus. You need to enter this subdivision in order to get to the park. The park is about an hour drive from Makati Manila.
