Meanwhile, if you are looking for events they also host here such as marathon, triathlon, swimming competition, and even zumba.
Next stop, River Park. This park is not just normal park, it features the breathtaking landscape of greenhouse and the artworks of Tarlac’s local artists such as Bea Valdes’ Sibol, Bernardo Pacquing’s “Domes Village,” Jude Tiotuico’s “Pag-ahon,” and Kenneth Cobonpue’s “Barrio.”
A little trivia, if you want to see the overview of New Clark City you can go to sit on the waterproof installation of the Barrio and take a deep breath with nature.
There are also food trucks and street concerts of Central Luzon Bands to enjoy at night. Finally, if you wish to just live here and be one with nature, you can purchase a condo unit at The Residences. They offer various sizes of rooms with many amenities.
