BGC has always been creative in utilising free space and they’ve done so with this playground and activity lot! For the urban joggers out there, Terra 20th’s fully-covered maroon asphalt track is perfect for your short distance workouts. The jogging loop measures about 310 meters. The most impressive details in this park are the paved courts specially designed for kids to get familiar with Filipino street games like piko, patintero, and luksong baka!
This open space caters for the more active residents of BGC. The 0.28km track path is made out of the same asphalt in Terra 20th, only it’s green! The jogging lanes encircle the park’s grass lawns, which are open for activities such as frisbee or soccer. The installations found in the park are intricately design to help you with core workouts or stretching.
Fairly new to BGC’s fitness scene, this fitness track has already been awarded the unique title of “Manila’s Longest Linear Park”— and with good reason! The 1.6km linear track stretches out from 5th avenue to Burgos circle. It’s tucked behind the numerous local residences and streets, making it a more hushed-out sanctuary for joggers. People normally bike and walk their dogs here too!
