I’ve Google searched this park a few times before and I’ve read some Trip Advisor reviewers say that Naga City Ecology Park (located in Barangay San Felipe) was mediocre, “so-so,” not well-maintained and not even worth the Php20.00 entrance fee. However, I beg to disagree because our trip was worth it.
I admit those unsatisfied reviews and the lack of pictures on the internet were the reasons why it took me so long before visiting the park. We went there this morning though and I am glad to learn that we have a beautiful place like this in Naga City.
As I noticed that there are not a lot of features and blog posts on Naga City Ecopark online, I am now going to share what awaits you, what you can expect when you visit and the things to see and do. Let’s go!
Take a relaxing walk while enjoying Mother Nature.
Discover the different kinds of trees, plants and flowers…
Even some fruits like this unripe chico and these curious berries (which are not edible BTW).
Explore the maze.
People seem to think that the maze is the main attraction of the ecopark but for me, this place has more to offer than just the maze. It was a dry spell when we visited this morning so it was not very green as I would have liked it to be. Looking at my photos, you cannot even tell that it’s a maze.
Visit the Topiary Garden
The Topiary Garden was where I felt that the short trip was worth it. It was well-kept, clean and as you can see, well-manicured trees!
Flowers are everywhere in the Topiary Garden.
Let your kids enjoy in the Graceland Ecopark Playground.
Visit Ellen White Garden (where all the flowers are white)
Find Inner Peace in Hardin ni Ina
Visit Jose Rizal Mini Eco Park
You have to kinda lower your expectations though and maybe you should save this one for last because it was not well-maintained and not much to see.
Over-all, Naga City Eco Park is a great place to visit in my opinion because there is no other place like this in Naga City. It is a great place to commune with nature and enjoy its beauty.
A VERY VERY IMPORTANT reminder though, please clean up after yourselves. Let’s not throw away trash anywhere around the park.
Till next post! Bye!
