Makati Park and Garden: Review

August 7, 2009

Makati Parks and Garden (or Makati Park, if you consider it a mouthful), is one of the places you go to unwind without spending if you’re tired of malls.  Located along JP Rizal Extension in West Rembo, across University of Makati, many consider it one of Mayor Binay’s best projects.  The grounds are massive, well-lit, and peaceful.  And the best part is you get one more choice for a reception venue.

If you’re (1) a Makati resident and (2) a bride or groom on a budget, then I’m sure this venue is in your reception shortlist;  if not, it definitely should.  Why? For a LOT of reasons. Let me explain each one:

Rate – P6000.  Need I say more? Beat that.. (then again, if you’re a non-Makati resident, they raise it to 12k, brrrr). 🙂


Right along JP Rizal Ext., Makati Park is a few minutes away from EDSA and an easy access from Pateros, Taguig, Mandaluyong, and some parts of Manila.  You can have your pick of nearby churches such as Nuestra Señora de Gracia in Guadalupe, Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish, Mater Dolorosa, St. John of the Cross Makati, Saint Michael Chapel, etc.  You can have preps at EDSA Horizon Hotel, Baluyot Mansion or if you prefer, some hotels in Ayala or those along Makati Avenue – Burgos.


For its price, this is absolutely a great deal.
Artist Pavilion – Although the left and right wing structures might give some of your guests a limited view of the presidential table and would be less engaging than those closer to you, you are at no disadvantage here.  The airconditioning is quite cool, you have ample space for the buffet setup and the catering staff, plus the large grounds outside the venue would give any wedding couple complete satisfaction 🙂 in my view at least hehe..
(You can have another option holding a garden wedding on the other side of the park but I don’t know much info about this yet.)


Definetely no problem here, you get a huge parking lot for all your guests and much much room to spare for children to run around.  May security guard pa on the entrance 🙂


You have the whole park for photo opportunities here. Though of course, this is a public park and some park visitors might stare a bit, but who cares!! It’s your big day!

If you have extra cash for a more expensive hotel venue, then good for you!!   But if you’re choosing on saving that extra money for the days, years after your big day, then go ahead and make the most of your being a Makateño!

    up extraordinary. Magnificent job!

    Hi, thanks for this review. Hmmn. My sister just asked me if I could be her wedding planner and I gladly accepted it. We’re not residents of Makati but we’ve been boarding here for quite some time. Wedding’s on a shoestring budget so I’m looking for everything cheap, from reception area to catering but would definitely try to make it a grandiose one. Thanks, the images and your kind feedback are helpful. 😉
