PICTURES: Stroll Around Marikina Riverbanks Center (River Park)

Marikina Riverbanks Center - Marikina River Park

Looking for a nice open-area spot in Metro Manila? Try going to Marikina City’s Riverbanks Center along the River Park. We’re sharing some pictures here so you can get a glimpse of what you can expect there. They have everything designed to amuse a family. They’ve got a family-friendly theme park, variety of foods, two nearby malls, a bazaar, rides, and games.

The park is usually crowded during the weekends. So I recommend you come on weekdays if you prefer a more peaceful atmosphere. Also, this is still a flood prone area, many of the establishment’s infrastructures are on stilts. So please be informed first about the weather before coming here.

But all in all, it’s a fun place to be even if you don’t have a budget. If you have a bicycle, much better. The park is bicycle-friendly so it’s good for sight seeing. It has a trail that stretches further east, from Marikina Riverbanks Amphitheater to Marikina River Park’s Roman Garden.
