The lush and beautifully landscaped Ayala Triangle Gardens is a haven for those who wish to take a small break from the fast-paced life in Makati and to be one with nature.
The present-day Ayala Gardens used to be Manila’s Pre- World War ll airport, Neilson Field. After the airfield was decommissioned the lands were returned to the Ayala family and redeveloped as a thriving commercial district.
The gardens are located right in the middle of Paseo de Roxas, Makati Avenue and Ayala Avenue which form the Ayala Triangle. Hailed as a trendy commercial spot with great restaurants, bakeries, and cafés, the area is within easy access to many a hotel in Manila, Philippines the likes of Berjaya Makati Hotel.
Said to have been inspired by the Hyde Park in London, Ayala Gardens is a landscaped space dotted with hundreds of trees such as golden palms, rain trees, fire trees and Podo Cerpus. A place of leisure, many come here for a jog, a brisk walk or just to hang out with friends.
This lush space is also home to some beautiful pieces of public art from the country’s leading contemporary artists such as Ovvian Castrillo- Hill and Ral Arrogante among others, which can be enjoyed during a walk through the gardens.
