List Of Kid-Friendly Outdoor Spaces In & Around Metro Manila This Pandemic

December 23, 2021

If you are thinking of bringing your kids outside, here is a list of recommended outdoor spaces in and around Metro Manila.

I love taking my kids outside to play and I’m also glad to see them genuinely enjoying the outdoors. When we were renting a condo unit in Makati, we would also go to the large common area. We would also take our kids to the mall on weekends. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic began last year, our outdoor activities have been limited.

    The advantages of the outdoors to children’s development


    I’m a firm believer in the advantages that the outdoors brings to children. That’s the reason why I love to take my kids out to play. I let them run outside, pick stones, and even play with dirt because it helps in their overall physical and mental development. Aside from that, the microbes in the dirt also help strengthen their immune system so that’s a good enough reason to let kids get dirty.

    A quick vacation in San Antonio, Nueva Ecija


    We were fortunate because during our two-month vacation to the province, our children were able to play outside almost every day just because there are open spaces immediately outside the house and our garden and backyard were big enough for our kids.

    If not for our jobs that await us in Metro Manila, I would’ve wanted for us to stay longer because I can see that our kids are having an extremely good time in our provincial home. Furthermore, all the time that they spent outside increased their bodies’ defenses so that they didn’t have an allergic rhinitis attack or catch any cold bug during our stay in the province.

    That being said, I began to look for outdoor spaces in and around Metro Manila where I can safely take our kids.

    Outdoor spaces that are safe and kid-friendly


    I’m a member of a dad group and I’m happy that most of my fellow fathers are looking for large open areas where they can also take their children out. Many of them gave good suggestions, as such, I also want to share them with other parents as a way of helping them out.

    Epilogue


    These days, going out with your family seems like a luxury. While we want to give our kids a good time and create happy memories with them, doing so is challenging because of the many health and safety risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    Just the same, there are still many outdoor open spaces in and around Metro Manila where we can take our kids for a weekend stroll or even a camping adventure.
