There’s no denying how dynamic the city of Makati is. Aside from being a prime business district, it’s also one of the top choices when looking for a home. Vibrant and ever changing, Makati City has always something new to offer—whether it’s a captivating skyscraper along Ayala Avenue or a lifestyle hub that brings conveniences closer to residents.

One good example is Circuit Makati, an entertainment and lifestyle hub that’s found in Barangay Carmona, occupying the huge land where the old Santa Ana Park racetrack used to be. Circuit Makati is poised to be a city hotspot, with a theater, events ground, and condominium buildings as part of its master plan. While some of the establishments within Circuit Makati have already opened shop, there are still a lot to discover in the place. If you’re visiting Makati City anytime soon, here are reasons why you should definitely check out Circuit:

1. You can jog, exercise, and walk around to break a sweat.

Circuit Makati is open to passing vehicles going to Manila and Makati. Measuring around 21 hectares, it has open spaces ideal for biking, jogging, and light exercises. The area near the Globe Circuit Events Ground is teeming with people busy with their workouts—especially on weekends.

A few steps from the actual events ground is the Santiago and Libertad Cua Park, with pathways and spots of green ideal for quiet breaks and relishing the breeze. There are benches and concrete steps where you can lounge around with friends, too. The best part? You can bring your furry friends for a walk as well.

2. It has a multipurpose events ground perfect for concerts and other activities.

Not only has the Globe Circuit Events Ground been a venue for Wanderland, an anticipated music fest, it’s also a top venue choice for city gatherings, obstacle courses, night markets, and outdoor cinema nights, to name a few.

If you fancy dropping by at night to clear your head, you can sit on one of the benches and marvel at the stars.

3. You can challenge your friends to a fun karting race.

Not only is Circuit Makati home to an events ground and a skate park, it also houses City Kart Racing, a 650m karting racetrack where you can feel the thrill of driving in the fast lane. Safety is of utmost importance so helmets and racing suits are available.

4. You’ll get lost in thousands of books.

Bookworms, rejoice! Ayala Malls Circuit has new stores and old favorites that we can visit for home essentials and more. Located near Shopwise is Biblio, an industrial-inspired bookstore that sells pre-owned books, stationery, and cute items that you’d love to take home. Spend hours browsing through shelves and be on the lookout for unique titles, too! Prices range from P100 to 300 (still cheaper than buying a brand new copy!) Here’s a treat: they also sell vintage first edition books and the store has a blind-date-with-a-book section!

5. There are multiple food choices perfect for dates and family bonding.
