Christmas tree park lights up in Bacolod
Around 250 Christmas trees of varying sizes and colors transformed the main road of Forbes Hill, Megaworld’s premier residential village in Bacolod City, into the country’s largest Christmas tree park.
Dubbed as the “Forbes Hill Christmas Forest,” the newly-unveiled attraction features Christmas trees adorned with thousands of dazzling colored lights that come alive at night and dance to the tune of a variety of Christmas jingles.
“This is the first time for Bacolod City to have a park filled with hundreds of Christmas trees, and we are glad to introduce this attraction as our way of celebrating Christmas in Megaworld. While others are into putting up giant Christmas trees and dancing lights, we thought of introducing something unique and different here at Forbes Hill. We would like invite everyone to come and visit us here at the Forbes Hill Christmas Forest and enjoy the fun and joyful vibe of the season by bringing along their families and friends,” explained Jennifer Palmares-Fong, vice president for sales and marketing of Megaworld Bacolod.
The Christmas tree park, which is open to the public 24/7, is located right beside the iconic Bacolod Welcome Marker, the Philippines’ first Las Vegas-inspired welcome marker that Megaworld and the City of Bacolod inaugurated last year.
The Christmas trees light up in a brilliant display of colors every night providing a festive feel in this area. Visitors who are either coming from the airport or the city proper can drop by the park, walk around, take as much photos and videos as they want, and enjoy the Christmas vibe as if they are in another country surrounded by hundreds of pine trees.
The 15-hectare Forbes Hill is the first upscale village inside Northill Gateway, one of Megaworld’s two townships in the City of Bacolod. Located along the Bacolod Airport Access Road near the new Bacolod-Silay Airport, Forbes Hill is only 20 minutes away from the downtown area of Bacolod City and only around 10 minutes from the new Bacolod People’s House through the new Circumferential Road.
Also rising at the eastern district of Bacolod is the property giant’s second township in the city, which is The Upper East. This 34-hectare district is the city’s first masterplanned mixed-use community that is poised to host Bacolod’s new and modern central business district.
