Ayala Triangle Gardens

As the name implies, Ayala Triangle Gardens is a triangular garden and courtyard named after its owner and developer Ayala Land.  The landscaped public park is located in the heart of Makati Central Business District and formerly the site of Manila Airport before World War II.  Blackbird restaurant and Filipinas Heritage Library, converted from the old airport’s control tower, the Nielson Tower, are located less than a kilometer away.

Inspired by London’s Hyde Park, the 2-hectare Ayala Triangle Gardens features green scenery consisting of different types of trees such as acacia, golden palm, fire tree, rain trees, and kamuning.  There are bushes of different kinds, thus the recognition as one of the few green areas in Makati’s urban jungle.

Aside from the greenery, several pieces of artworks of Filipino artists as well as monuments dedicated to Benigno Aquino Jr., Gabriela Silang, and Muhammad Kudarat are also found in the park.  The Triangle is also home to some buildings including the old Makati Stock Exchange Center, Ayala Tower One where the Philippine Stock Exchange is located, Ayala Triangle Tower One, and Ayala Triangle Tower Two which is the location of The Shops.  Behind the Makati Stock Exchange Center is a strip of al fresco restaurants where people can enjoy good food after relaxing at the park.

Ayala Triangle Gardens is known for its annual Festival of Lights which takes place from November to December.  The show, running every 30 minutes from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, features flashing LED lights, laser effects, and fog effects as well as Filipino and International Christmas music.
