The Park in the middle of the Quezon City
La Mesa Watershed in Quezon City is the primary source of drinking
water of about 12 million Metro Manila residents. The property is owned
by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS), a government agency.
La Mesa Ecopark envisions a better environment for our children. Our mission is to spread
environmental awareness through education and advocacy. La Mesa Ecopark is a venue providing
for healthful outdoor recreation and a true forest experience. It is a living classroom and laboratory
for environmental education and aims to be a center for biodiversity conservation.
LA MESA ECOPARK MISSION
-The primary purpose of La Mesa Ecopark is to provide opportunities for enjoying healthful outdoor recreation and to serve as outdoor classrooms for environmental education.
At La Mesa Ecopark, each member of the family can enjoy varied outdoor activities. La Mesa Ecopark boasts of the following facilities:
-Lopez Picnic Grounds -- Five hectares of picnic spots with grilling facilities underneath a forest of varied trees.
-Salt Water Swimming Pool -- Probably the only salt water pool that is open to the public. Salt granules are used instead of chlorine making the water safer and less toxic.
-Superferry Boating Lagoon -- To experience and enjoy a paddle boat ride, one once had to trek all the way to Baguio's Burnham Park to do so. Now this popular activity is available right here in Quezon City.
-Fishing Lagoon -- Fishing is another very popular to-do at the park.
-Petron Fitness and Mountain Bike Trail -- Here, one can enjoy a full-body workout under the shade of trees. The fitness trail has 17 exercise stations and connects to a forested 1.2 km mountain bike trail.
-Shell Flower Terraces -- Two hectares of flower terraces. This is actually the dam wall of the reservoir.
-Ecomuseum -- A museum dedicated to environmental education and biodiversity conservation.
-Butterfly Trail and Hatchery -- An educational walk through the wonderful, colorful world of butterflies.
-Various pavilions for rent are available for private functions.
Overnight camping facilities also available.
