Consuelo Park properties: A nature escape, an event haven, and a home-away-from-home at the heart of FPIP
In December 2021, First Philippine Industrial Park formally opened Consuelo Park, a four-hectare nature park, a green oasis at the center of the 600-hectare industrial estate. Inspired by the late matriarch of the Lopez Family, Ma. Consuelo Mercedes “Connie” Rufino Lopez, this nature sanctuary is a testament to Mrs. Lopez’s nurturing demeanor towards her own family and the environment. Consuelo Park – along with the Consuelo Park Residences and Consuelo Park Pavilion, launched shortly after the launch of the park – represents FPIP’s goal to create a dynamic community that fosters the well-being, growth, and development of the FPIP locator employees and public visitors through nature therapy, events, and secured living.
Consuelo Park is a charming recreational linear park thoughtfully laid out with abundant foliage that has become a nature escape for locator employees and public visitors who seek rest and recreation.
It boasts a 1.2-kilometer natural trail, a 700-square meter outdoor amphitheater, a stunning koi pond, and a variety of unique spots where visitors can savor the park’s natural beauty. But more than that, the lush greenery serves as a picturesque backdrop for recreational activities, family and corporate events, and photoshoots that have now become a whimsical experience for park visitors.
In remembrance of Rufino, a dwarf variation of the Rafflesia flower species was named Rafflesia consueloae. This acted as a driving force that propelled efforts to conserve biodiversity in the Philippines following her passing. Consequently, Consuelo Park was established as a tribute to her legacy and to further support the cause of biodiversity conservation.
Consuelo Park Pavilion
Adjacent to Consuelo Park is Consuelo Park Pavilion, FPIP’s newly erected 1,400-square meter tent—built to host large-scale events and accommodate up to 1,000 guests. Leveraging the beauty of Consuelo Park, the Pavilion features the seamless convergence of nature and elegance that crafts a charming yet luxe location for personal celebrations and corporate functions.
