Midori and I usually walk around the streets of Salcedo Village. One weekend though, we decided to cross Paseo de Roxas and we checked out the newly landscaped Ayala Triangle Gardens. It was Sunday afternoon so apart from Midori and myself, there was only one other family in the park. I am happy that dogs were not banned (they are actually banned in Salcedo Park).
I have mixed feelings over the park. On the one hand, it’s a good addition to outdoor places for the residents and office workers in Makati. On the other hand, it seems like there are a lot less trees in the area compared to when it was just the Ugarte field. God knows that the Green areas in the business district has slowly given way to Ayala Land’s development. It started with Glorietta, then Greenbelt, and now the Ayala Triangle Garden. With less green patches of land, that also means less trees which could actually help in alleviating the heat in this area.
