When you go to La Mesa Ecopark, you can do many activities such as in Butterfly Trail and Hatchery where one can enjoy walking and observing the world of butterflies with different colors, Ecomuseum which serves as museum for education and biodiversity conservation, biking in Petron Fitness and Mountain bike trail. Fishing, boating and swimming in salt water pool are also one of the popular activities in the park. These are just some of the activities and facilities the park can offer.
Just like any tourist destination, the La Mesa Ecopark was not spared from the abuse. Owned by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, a government agency, this park was just reopened to public last 2004 after it was rehabilitated from being ruined due to illegal logging, settling and poaching. One of the groups helping the preservation of the place is the ABS-CBN Foundation Bantay Kalikasan.
It is our personal obligation to help conserve, protect and preserve this park. AS, stated, the role of the La mesa Watershed must be continued from its present state to the future. We can contribute to this by obeying the rules and regulations when visiting the place.
