Ayala Triangle is situated at the center of Makati’s business district. It is surrounded by the well-known streets and intersections of Ayala Avenue, Makati Avenue, and Paseo de Roxas (which forms a triangle, hence the name). The Ayala Triangle Gardens features a lush scenery of plants and trees, as well as a strip of top-rated restaurants.
The Ayala Triangle is home to the Filipinas Heritage Library and some of the most recommended restaurants in the city. There are also a few public art installations that can be found in random spots in the park. All of which are created by the leading artists in the country.
Makati City may be known for being the center of business and financial district in the Metro, but it has also been a creative hub hidden in the surface of the city’s tall buildings and busy streets. As a matter of fact, Makati houses quite a number of museums and galleries, as well as parks, sculptures, and art pieces that are located in the heart of the city. It is where art enthusiasts, curious creatives, or even exhausted employees who are in dire need of a quick escape from the office come together to discover and appreciate the local art scene.
Ayala Triangle Gardens is one of the best spots to chill, go for a walk, and hang out. The park is full of greeneries which make the park the perfect place to go to when you need to wind down. The ambiance is refreshing and the surrounding trees bring cool air. I have been to the Gardens a couple of times to eat out with my co-workers but whenever I am alone, my favorite thing to do in the park is people-watching. I also take my camera with me so I can capture a few shots, then I find a place where I can read or write.
Every December, Ayala Triangle Gardens turns into a magical place brimming with vibrant colors and lights. It is one of the most popular destinations during the Christmas season. The main attraction is the dancing lights and sounds show. The theme varies each year–and having witnessed a couple of shows throughout the years, I think all shows are equally great.
