Ortigas Park, A Breathing Space In A Business District

Ortigas Park offers a green space in the middle of a commercial business district. It links to Ruby Road to F. Ortigas Jr. Road which is formerly Emerald Avenue. This pocket park has a stage in the middle, towering cascade walls as a backdrop and a wall fountain. It provides a green space as it has trees, palms, nice foliage, and a paved walkway. There are also trellises that provide shade for passersby and bench seating for those who want to loiter for some time. 

A part often ignored in this park is the mural descriptions on its walls. It tells about a slice of the history of the district and features carved faces that give a hint about the Ortigas’ family

The mini-park is a perfect place to stop by to read a book or enjoy a cup of coffee. There is a café and convenience store on it and the Banchetto stalls are situated across it every carless weekend. Meanwhile, you may also rest here after using the Pasig Bike Share

A breathing space

Being located in a business district, this is just often being passed by professionals and used as a pedestrian link. However, some office workers around go here to have a break and unwind in the middle of the day. It serves as a place where weary employees can relax a bit, rest, and replenish. It is a breathing space for those who are overwhelmed by the fast-paced routine in the business commercial district. 

On carless weekends, this clean park is more appreciated and crowded than on weekdays.  People rest here for a while after exercising, biking or walking around Ortigas Jr. Road. Also, some people sit on its benches while enjoying the food they bought from Banchetto.

Happy Travels! 💛
