Around Town: RAVE of PasigAmidst this bustling metropolis is a new recreational haven worth discovering for young and old alike.
Pasig—home to business hub Ortigas, foodie paradise Kapitolyo, and a growing number of high-rise residential units. But within this highly urbanized city-municipality is also a thriving ecological gem, a perfect respite for families on weekends or during the holidays.
The rainforest park in Maybunga, Pasig, established in 1977, was initially intended to help catalyze the modernization of the town. Equipped with a mini Olympic-sized swimming pool, jogging oval, a playground, tennis courts and a fitness center, the park gave Pasigueños a venue for keeping fit and a place to unwind within the 4.8 expanse.
With the passing of several decades, the park has undergone several changes, including acquiring an additional 2.10 hectares and Pasig being declared as a city in 1996. This year, under the new mayor Maribel Eusebio, the rainforest park has been spruced up with even more amenities to entice visitors from neighboring municipalities also, thereby boosting tourism.
Today, residents, students, families and thrill-seekers flock to the newly-renovated park each day, under the new name RAVE (Rainforest Adventure Experience) of Pasig. Among the park’s newest constructions are the boating lagoon, maze garden, zip line, in addition to the petting zoo, butterfly pavilion, aviary, water park pools, train station and ampitheater.
Guests can exercise, interact with animals, discover a variety of flora and experience an adrenaline rush with a number of family-friendly attractions housed within the vicinity. For a comprehensive listing of RAVE’s rates and to view a map, click here.
