Hidden Garden of Bel-Air, Makati

Bel-Air Village in Makati is probably the cleanest Barangay (smallest administrative division in the Philippines). This village is the first few subdivision development by Ayala Corporation in the 1950's. Originally, this community was built as housing facility for Filipino and American pilots serving Philippine Airlines. The first resident requested that "air" be included in the name of the village, hence, Bel-Air. 

Today, it’s not only one of the most known Barangay in the country; it’s also one the greenest village (lots of trees). To some extent, this park reminds me of smaller version of Victoria Park in Hong Kong, with its tall skyscraper as one of its background. Unlike in Singapore, where most parks are open to the public, the Bel-Air Park has not been discovered because of its gated community. 

Recently, I had a chance to access this garden, fortunately,  I didn't have to do a William (from the movie Notting Hill,  as William Thacker trespass the Rosmead Gardens and says "Whoops a daisy") and climb the highly secured community of Bel-Air Makati.

Quite and relaxing time at the Park,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.,cf.osb&biw=1280&bih=699&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=Bel+Air+Makati&fb=1&gl=sg&hq=Bel+Air&hne
