In the thick of the highly charged, fast-paced life of a premier district, it’s a cool surprise to discover playgrounds and landscape parks where we can relax and indulge in recreation or bonding activities.
BGC is more than just a busy community of successful companies, classy residences, plush restaurants, and avant-garde shops. Espousing an active lifestyle, BGC extends the energy and excitement to the green environment, the arts and culture, and sports and fitness. BGC has allocated fifteen percent of its land to open spaces suitable for a variety of outdoor activities. It is most pleased to provide its residents and visitors with safe, quality venues for play and wellness with the recent opening of theme parks, Terra 28th and Track 30th.
A park that is about 8,344-sqm park in 28th street which has a picnic ground, open play fields, a dog park, a jogging path, interactive art installations, and a ‘Larong Pinoy’ area where families can revive old Pinoy games such as Piko, Holen, Patintero, Luksong Baka, and Habulang Taya.

At the Larong Pinoy area, there's a luksong baka lawn, as well as permanent piko lines and space for habulan, holen and patintero. Stick figure drawings show the kids how to play. Everything is designed with kids in mind - even the trash can is colorful. Nearby, kids can jump on the steel and glass Musical Steps designed by Rico and Chachu Lascano. There's also a fascinating Color Me Chameleon that changes color as its glass beads turn. The Rest and Play Ribbon playground is brightly colored, with unusually-shaped monkey bars, swings and a seesaw.
principles of design:
- line- just like the terra 28th , this open area uses curved pathways
- color- more of the neutral colors since the park is intended for meditation and physical activities
- space- basically Terra 28th’s counterpart on the other side of Bonifacio High Street
principles of composition:
- rhythm- it uses an alternative design layout wherein what you see on the other side reflects on the other
- emphasis- stresses on their disc and poles which is a recycled exercise equipment
- balance- application of asymetrical plan that denotes different forms and shapes
- unity- as a counterpart, it is also in line with the existing structures
|Track 30th’s Raised Running Disc helps track the distance the runner has covered. It is made of recycled shredded rubber.|
Terra 28th and track 30th is open to public from 6am to 10 pm.
