La Mesa Eco Park

La Mesa Eco Park is a preserved nature park located near La Mesa Dam which is where most of Metro Manila’s water is sourced. The park is established to promote the rehabilitation and protection of the La Mesa Watershed partnered with:

  • ABS-CBN – a television network
  • Metropolitan Water Services – a water services utility
  • Quezon City – a city where La Mesa Eco Park is located

The park is a great place for family bonding, team building, outings, and even soul searching. Why? Well, this is because it is a place to get in touch with nature, away from electronic gadgets (or at least with limited access to the internet). Cameras are an exception, of course!

Activities and Attractions:

  • Swimming – the pool is open from 9AM to 4PM. The rare for persons above 3 ft is P80.00 while those below 3 ft would need to pay P40.00. Proper swimming attire is required. Cotton-made and denim fabrics as well as clothes with buttons and zippers are not allowed.

How to get there:

From North Avenue or Quezon Avenue, take the Commonwealth road (here are the following landmarks you would pass by: Ever Gotesco Mall, Saint Peter’s Church, Litex Market, and Puregold). Puregold is on the left side, so after passing by Puregold, pay close attention to your right since it’s where you’ll see Winston Street.

  1. la mesa eco park is only 15 minutes drive away from our place, it is nice to stroll in this park in the afternoon when the sun is down or early mornings 🙂

  2. PHp 80 per person is a good price to pay to enter a swimming pool. Summer is coming so families can go to La Mesa Eco Park for some affordable adventure.
