Looking for a breath of fresh air but don’t have the luxury of time to travel away from Metro Manila? No worries—La Mesa Ecopark has finally announced its reopening.

The ecopark is now under the management of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS). It starts a new journey as an environmental hub.

Earlier this year, many Filipinos were saddened by the temporary closure of the ecopark. The ABS-CBN Foundation handed over its stewardship after 25 years. The non-profit organization had protected, preserved, and maintained Metro Manila’s only forest of its kind for years. They partnered with the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) and the Quezon City local government.

The recent announcement from the ecopark’s official account has brought excitement and anticipation to many Filipinos. The park will reopen on June 29, just in time for the closing of Philippine Environment Month.

Now managed by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage Systems (MWSS), which tapped Manila Water Company Inc. as a rehabilitation partner, the 33-hectare public park is located at the La Mesa Watershed Reservation, near the La Mesa Dam.

Before its closure last February, it was a popular destination for those seeking nearby hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and other outdoor activities. The Ecopark featured an “Ecotrail” and an orchidarium, perfect for nature enthusiasts. Even local celebrities participated in tree-planting activities there last year.

As per the official post: “Manila Water Company (MWC), in partnership with Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) and the Quezon City Government, opens the first phase of the La Mesa Ecopark to showcase flora and fauna in the city and urge all visitors to care for the environment and take climate action. Under the stewardship of Manila Water Foundation (MWF), the La Mesa Ecopark opens on June 29 to close the Philippine Environment Month but begins a renewed journey as an environment hub to experience BiodiverCity: biodiversity in the city.”

While other details of its reopening are yet to be shared and other parts of the multi-phase plan supporting the development and protection of the area remain to be implemented, many are eager to see the ecopark and once again enjoy its tranquil environment.

Home to more than 30 small animal species, 130 plant species, and 53 bird species (as reported by the Center for Conservation Innovations PH), La Mesa Ecopark has been a favorite destination for many because of its rich biodiversity and natural beauty.

Are you ready for the reopening of La Mesa Ecopark? Stay tuned for more details.
