I’ve been hearing about the Pasig City Rainforest Park from the Facebook page of former Mayor Bobby Eusebio. It was recently re-branded to Rainforest Adventure Experience (RAVE) of Pasig City.
Yesterday, I dragged my photography friend Gilbert Obal to this place. It’s located at Barangay Maybunga, Pasig City. There is a tricycle station near Mang Inasal in Pasig Palengke and some of these tricycles pass by the Pasig City Rainforest Park. Just ask for the correct TODA.
The Adventure Park is one of the several areas of RAVE of Pasig. It’s perfect for biking, skate boarding, mountain climbing and even Zipline!
The Pasig City Rainforest Park (now known as RAVE of Pasig) is a smaller version of Quezon City’s Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center, only cleaner. It’s complete with such facilities as the Rave Amphitheater, Mini-Zoo, Flower Fields, Adventure Park (for wall climbing, biking, skate boarding, etc.), a Zipline, Kiddie Playland, Senior Citizen’s Park, Mini-Train Station, Butterfly House, Cottages and Pool Area. The entrance is free but some of the facilities have fees (like the Pool Area and the Mini-Zoo).
We arrived around 4:30 PM and some of the facilities are already closed (like the mini-train) so we never had the chance to take pictures of it. The place is perfect for outdoor photo-shoots for newbie photographers and models but I was advised that there is a P50 per head fee for photo-shoots. This is a perfect alternative to the popular Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center and is perfect for the entire family. Joggers and students will also find the place ideal for quiet time away from the busy city life.
I’ll definitely visit the Pasig City Rainforest Park again hopefully with my photography friends and some models for an ex-deal shoot. This place is also perfect for macro photography.
