Situated on the Antonio Villegas Street (formerly known as Calle Arroceros) in the central district of Ermita in the city of Manila, Philippines, Arroceros Forest Park is a hidden secret and a verdant oasis in the heart of the concrete jungle of the metro city. Abound with shady dense green trees, coupled with the eerie yet tranquil silence and peppered with beautiful brooks, the forest is considered to be the green lung amidst the chaos and cacophony of the hustling city.
Flanked on the riverside of the River Pasig, the park was developed in 1993 and sprawls over a vast 5.4 acres of urban forested land. Sheltering a wide variety of ornamental plants and some very rare breeds of avifauna, Arroceros Forest Park is also dubbed as ‘Manila’s last lung’ as it is the only nature park in the city. The park is managed and maintained by the City Government of Manila in partnership with the private environmental group- Winner Foundation. Providing a refreshing change from the heat and pollution of the city, the lush green park is one of the prime attractions of Manila thronged by both the locals and tourists alike.
