When I was still working in Ortigas Center, one of the places I frequent was Greenfield District. I love this master-planned township as it presents a continuum of options for those quick get-togethers. All the more that I miss the place this Yuletide season. It is that perfect place to make the holiday celebration more memorable.
Allow me to share why Greenfield District is such a chill place this holiday season:
Be part of “A Christmas for Generations” weekend festivities
The Central Park holds a series of weekend holiday-themed events for the family. The township’s park is a huge pocket of green for outdoor recreation and events. Recently, a tree lighting activity and lantern parade took place. More festive activities are expected.

Hangout at the Weekend Market
The popular Greenfield Weekend Market is found at the Central Park. This is a popular place for foodies and art enthusiasts who like to savor good food and appreciate good art. For the holidays, the food stalls offering well-loved local and international cuisines are dressed in Christmas themes. Art patrons can witness visual artists and illustrators at work as they capture people and moments. For gift ideas, visitors can also have a look in the fashion, arts & crafts, and children’s merchandise stalls around the promenade.
Jump, fly, and bounce at the Trampoline Park
For the thrill-seekers, the Trampoline Park warehouse is the perfect place for them. Dozens of trampoline “mats” are connected inside the warehouse to form one huge surface. This allows groups of friends or families to jump, fly, and bounce in every direction to their hearts’ content.
Conquer new heights with Climb Central
For those who like to try something new these holidays, the Climb Central is the perfect challenging respite. Taking on new heights and letting go of all the anxieties and troubles of the past year might just be the goal once one reaches the top. This place is ideal either for first time climbers and the more expert ones.
Have a picnic at the park
Celebrations need not be limited indoors. The holiday season is the opportune time to enjoy the cold breeze with the company of friends or loved ones. They can spread a blanket at the Central Park as they enjoy some homemade sandwiches. Or they can take turns playing Frisbee or badminton amidst the Christmas lights and decorations.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll at the Pavilion Mall
The Pavilion, which is connected to the MRT Shaw Boulevard Station, houses commercial, beauty, and retail establishments. One can shop here or indulge in pampering sessions in preparation for the Christmas gatherings.
Dine or plan a party in one of the restaurants
Greenfield District is a popular culinary destination. The Hub caters to the more refined dining experience with its strip of new bars, restaurants, and cafes. A few are Blackwood Bistro, Kanin Club, Cafe Breton, Una Lounge Resto, and Ramen Bar. The more popular and familiar diners are found at The Portal. These are the Yellow Cab, Starbucks, Pancake House and Wendy’s. Whatever the budget, there’s an option that will definitely fill the belly with delicious food and drink.
Visit niche markets
Some groups of friends or families practice a common sport or hobby. Cycling enthusiasts, for one, can drop by the renovated Yamaha Showroom called the Yzone. There, they can buy small or big bikes, and helmets or rider’s jackets. These are perfect Christmas present for oneself or for a loved one.
Christmas celebrations at Greenfield District
Every place in this 12.8-hectare district is connected via walkways and bridges. This makes coming to the different locations easy for visitors and mall goers. The infrastructures are also embedded with a pioneering fiber-optic framework. This allows one faster internet connection, making posting Christmas updates hassle-free.
Experience all these at Greenfield District and have the merriest Christmas celebration. And oh, don’t forget to post your photos with family and friends when in the district. Happy holidays!
