5 Relaxing Properties With Parks And Gardens In The City
Because we all need a bit of breathing space
Open spaces with trees, landscaping, and pleasant walkways are a rarity in Metro Manila. So it usually comes as a surprise when you stumble upon a real estate developer who would sacrifice a couple of hectares to create a park or garden, rather than build yet another high rise. Here are five of them:
This commercial, residential, and retail development in Quezon City is a fast-growing hub, what with its relaxed Vertis North mall and the five-star Seda Hotel. Another attraction is its two-hectare Vertis Gardens, a sprawling, open park in the middle of the commercial and residential district, which will be a welcome reprieve in the busy area.

The Arton by Rockwell
Katipunan is prime real estate space, considering the number of top schools and universities in the area. So if you have school-age children, it makes sense to consider The Arton, which is located on top of a hill along Aurora Boulevard. Aside from its family-friendly amenities such as a FIBA-sized multipurpose court, gym, and pools, the enclave has lots of jogging paths, gardens, and views of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range.
