A Weekend Stroll at Quezon Memorial Circle

There's a breathing space in the center of the largest city of Metro Manila lies the monument in honor of former President Manuel Quezon.

This kind of environment is all we need to take a break and have a weekend leisure walk at Quezon Memorial Circle. It's believed to be the last lungs of Quezon city with the protected 27-hectare green oval park.

The 66-meter shrine has three tall Pylons. That's a center of attraction in the busy elliptical road where six major lanes meet. It has three angels on the top that symbolizes the three biggest Philippine Island group -- Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

I like it when you can find green space in a large metropolis where people can visit for leisure, and Quezon Memorial Circle is one of the best places for fitness, shopping, museum tour, and food trip.

The remains of former Philippine President Manuel Quezon are inside the monument with his wife, Aurora. He's one of the best and dignified statesmen the Philippines ever had, making his life worth remembering.

What's good about Quezon Memorial Circle is the many activities that visitors can do. I've seen many fitness groups doing exercises like jogging, biking, dancing, and even just sitting on benches or a simple walk exploring different areas of interest.

This place is also best for people who are into collecting various ornamental plants. There are so many business stalls that sell different varieties of plants and flowers. It makes the place greener and cooler that makes it an ideal outdoor park. 

During this pandemic, indoor and outdoor gardening became a hobby of many people in the metropolitan area. It became part of their health and wellness goals to go green and relieve stress surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers.


A leisure walk in a park brings invigorating energy from the greeneries and the active people. We would want to achieve balance in our living. Though life in the metropolis can be exhausting, we need to take a deep breath and have a youthful glow. And so we could share that lighter energy and vibrant glow with others as well.

Quezon Memorial Circle has a lot to offer, and since the 1950s, it underwent several transformations and the newest attractions. 

We need more green parks in major cities all over the Philippines, and Quezon Memorial Circle is one of the best parks to be replicated or become a source of inspiration.

A green living is Godly Living.
