- Arroceros Forest Park is located beside the Light Railway Train Central Terminal and Quezon Bridge, across the Manila Metropolitan Theater along Arsenio Villegas Avenue. It's 2.2 hectares of trees is a relatively minuscule yet significant oasis of cool shade among the the stone buildings of Manila. It consists of sixty tree and six bird species. Among the regular activities there are cultural shows, tree planting, painting sessions and other social activities especially during weekends. Walking along the riverside, one can see across the banks the Quiapo Bridge and the Pasig River Ferry cruise through endless floating water hyacinths and squawking white seabirds. It is certainly the nearest forest park anywhere near the city and a place to find yourself reflecting on the nuances of life to recharge for another week of hard grind inside an office building.
