First Philippine Industrial Park organized ‘Wins and Wellness’ at the Consuelo Park amphitheater to promote good health as well as fellowship among employeesConsuelo Park in Batangas has certainly stirred up a lot of interest in the past few months. The name “Consuelo Park” became a buzzword among Batangueños online as it garnered hundreds of positive reactions from different highprofile Facebook pages, such as those of First Philippine Industrial Park (FPIP) and the City Tourism & Cultural Heritage Development Office of Sto. Tomas, Batangas. Pretty soon, the excitement online quickly translated into more and more visitors wandering around and enjoying the park.
FPIP locator-employees, families, romantic couples, health enthusiasts and the like have found a place for recreation and relaxation in Consuelo Park; event organizers have found value and functionality in the park to hold get-togethers, especially with the rise in popularity of open-air event spaces amidst the COVID-19 situation.
The 700-square meter amphitheater near the park’s archway can cater to up to 600 guests, offering ample outdoor space for an array of social gatherings and activities. In addition to this, the 1.2-kilometer nature trail that rings the park provides a scenic path for leisurely strolls. The koi pond and Japanese bridge are fast becoming favorite Instagram spots!
After Consuelo Park was launched, FPIP’s “Wins and Wellness” event was held there in early 2022. Employees were invited to an afternoon picnic that combined a barbecue buffet and an assortment of outdoor activities that extended well into the evening with a lively cover band. The amphitheater has since become a venue for socializing and entertainment, with the open terrain ideal for relaxing pastimes and the trail perfect for rejuvenating bike rides.
In June 2022, Consuelo Park was included in Batangas Biker’s Club’s “Dayuhan Ride in Sto. Tomas” cycling route, welcoming a diverse set of cyclists through its arches. The park is also scheduled to host Rotary Club of Sto. Tomas’ “Color Fun Run” this November.
