The Garden beside the world famous Philippine Arena is gradually gaining its place as a local attraction for Filipino families. Your baby boomer dad or your iGen pamangkin and you millennial Tita would sure have a thing to enjoy at The Garden. You don’t know what that is, but let’s!
This is like a mini Flower Dome of Singapore. It is cool here inside literally and figuratively. Flowers are at their full bloom it could take over your mood.
We may like flowers but we all want to love a cactus, don’t we? Get the courage to hug a cactus today. Of course, that’s a metaphor.
Several exotic animals are taken care by The Garden for education and conservation. I haven’t took photos of them and just wanted to say hi to them. But here’s the list of animals as of May 2018:
- Barbados Blackberry Sheep
- Rusa Deer
- Boer Goat
- Wild Boar
- Long-tailed Macaque
- Celebes Crested Macaque
- Sulcata Tortoise
- Miniature Horse
- Albino Carabao
- Wagyu Bull
- Serpent Eagle
- White Breasted Sea Eagle
- Nicobar Pigeon
- White Tiger
Give yourself the highs and the lows with the exciting Arena Rides. Not the ones you expect in famous amusement parks but just enough to make your heart skip a beat or hold closer to your family or loved one.
There are also other spots in The Garden that would bring out the kid in anyone.
And the romantic gazebo that could bring out the lover in you.
Japanese gardens are known for stone works, waterfalls and ponds. A bridge where you can look over school of Koi suggests expansiveness to the whole place. A little zen garden gives you the feeling of tranquility but no time for being calm since the whole place is waiting for you to discover, lol.
When the sun sets, colorful lights will brighten up to what look likes a dojo. You can’t help but notice the dry landscapes. Bonsai art could not be missing in a Japanese garden.
Embrace Cafe and Restaurant serves rice meals, pasta, desserts, and signature frappes. Something that would melt your heart here are the Deaf community that serves your food. You may want to learn how to say thank you in Sign.
My parents loved the 4 Kinds of mushroom worth P180 good for the three of us. It is really tasteful and I can barely taste artificial food flavoring. The natural flavorings are more eminent in the dish. The platter of rice is worth P120. A total of P300 is enough for the three of us and we were really full.
Every spot in The Garden is picturesque that every step you take has an awesome background.
You can take selfies all day until you get haggard, lol.
