Sunday at La Mesa Ecopark

La mesa eco park

Spent our Sunday at La Mesa Ecopark.  I was really impressed with how very well maintained this park is considering the very cheap entrance fee — Php50 per person ( about $1.5 ).  There were many people when we went there yesterday but not at all crowded because the place is huge and full of shady trees so going there even on a very sunny day is still perfect.

The place is very peaceful, clean and the air very fresh. We did a lot of walking so it was a great fun exercise.

Horseback Riding ranges from Php100-Php200 ( $2.5 – $4 ).   Quite sad about this because the horse trail is too short, we were not allowed to go around the whole park with it but my daughter enjoyed it so we rode two types of horses. Screen shot 2014-03-23 at 10.43.38 AM

We had to pay another P60 ($1.5 ) to be able to go in the Butterfly Haven.  There were many butterflies that we can easily touch (catching them is not allowed ).  For me the haven would’ve been worth going and worth paying a little more if it was a lot more bigger with more butterflies.  I wonder who caught Mr. Butterfly?

There are many more things to do here like swimming, fishing and rock climbing, which we did not do but probably next time when we’re more prepared.  My only regret was we did not bring snacks since it’s a very beautiful place for picnic.

The foods were very simple but delicious, mostly grilled or barbequed and we just drank fresh coconut juice.

The place is worth visiting if you long for fresh air and healthy outdoor activities.  Only 15 minutes away from where I live so I would definitely go back here for a relaxing weekend.

  1. Thanks for taking us to your fun family adventure. The park is beautiful. It’s indeed a bargain considering the rates of the entrance fee, the rides and all. You made me remember the many times I had the best of memories in the Philippines with hardly much cost in the pocket. All the best to you and your family.

  2. We were at QC Memorial Circle naman last Sunday, where is La Mesa Ecopark? I haven’t been there and I guess it’s way better than Quezon Memorial Circle because the place is not too crowded. That would be our next target! Thanks for sharing this Abi! Great photos btw! 🙂

    • Hi Sha, its located along Commonwealth Ave. I don’t really know the exact address because the website only provides us with a map going there, you can easily google it. Its really a great place for family especially on Sundays because there’s no traffic going there. Make sure you bring lots of snacks 🙂
