Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is a bustling metropolis with a rich history and a vibrant urban landscape.

The park offers a variety of outdoor activities, including hiking and biking trails, a butterfly garden, a fishing lagoon, and picnic areas. It’s a great place to enjoy nature, spot wildlife, and unwind in a peaceful setting.
