This past Thursday we had the opportunity to visit an oasis in Quezon City. La Mesa Eco Park is a public park in the middle of the La Mesa Watershed Reservation and is the largest remaining rainforest in Metro Manila. The lush greenery and vegetation were a welcome sight. The air was fresh and clean and the temperature felt at least 5 degrees cooler than where we live in Quezon City. It was a real paradise to wander through and relax in. Enjoy the photos!
So much to see and do at the Eco Park!
Sparkling clean water of the fishing pond.
A gorgeous array of plant life
Interesting waxy corkscrew leaves
Another variation of corkscrew leaves
My favourite plant – I don’t know the name but I love the shocking pink
Beautiful dramatic flowers
Bright, almost fluorescent green leaves, not caught very well by my camera
After some time of exploration we sought refuge under a cabana
It’s a hard life – napping in the rainforest
