Freeman Cebu Lifestyle

An Outdoor Mecca for Family, Friends and Nature

The Freeman

CEBU, Philippines – The city has a new hangout hub that connects friends and family and makes them more in touch with nature. Cebu I.T. Park’s Garden Bloc, launched on December 11 in an event dubbed “A Night at the Garden,” offers a feel of the many exciting outdoor possibilities at the open park.

The launching event featured performances depicting the four elements of nature. The highlight was the switch-on ceremony led by Cebu Holdings Inc.’s Business Development Manager Romulo Alajid, Marketing Division Manager Catrina Martinez, Business Development Manager Nori Saito and Business Development Supervisor Gwen Sala. As trees surrounding the area lit up, The Social’s Kevin Moss, Sugbo Mercardo Food Market’s JP Chiongbian and Nino Bascon, Pages Holdings Inc.’s Bunny Pages, Yakski’s Barbecue’s Alvin Roxas and TaKo Mexican-Korean Fusion Food Truck’s Johann Bontuyan — executives behind the food concepts found at the Garden Bloc — took to the stage to unveil the commemorative marque.

“The Garden Bloc answers the growing need for more open spaces and parks, especially in a very urban and bustling environment as the Cebu I.T. Park, which is home to 70 percent of the island’s IT/ BPO companies,” says Cebu Holdings, Inc. Marketing Division Manager Catrina Martinez. “To complement the vibrancy of Cebu I.T. Park and to add more value to those working and living here, the Garden Bloc not only provides new entertainment and dining options but, more importantly, a more balanced lifestyle in a relaxing, open-air setting surrounded with greens.”

Guests swarmed the three-hectare open space during the launching. Everyone delighting in the variety of foods around the park, and checked the lifestyle bazaar for Christmas gift items and unique discoveries. An outdoor concert featuring 22 Tango’s Mother Folker (a.k.a. Cattski Espina), Ella Melendez, Vincent Eco, Ivy Gallur and Mike Fegi and a surprise performance by Kurt Fick.

Envisioned to be an escape from the busy city life, the Garden Bloc is a relaxing and reenergizing space for family, friends and those awho are always on-the-go. Lined pathways beckon for a leisurely walk, jog or run under the trees. The Central Green, at the heart of the 5,000 –square-meter events area, can host a range of activities – from garden and outdoor events,  wellness sessions to bazaars and intimate concerts.

Cebu I.T. Park’s Garden Block will complement and even liven up the already vibrant streets of the 27-hectare estate. More information is available at http://www.cebuitpark.com. Leasing and event booking inquiries may be directed to phone number 231 5301 loc 118 for.
