Ykaie enjoyed our day at the Quezon Memorial Circle last week. Why were we there? Well, peanutbutter♥ had to get an occupational permit at the Quezon City Hall and we wanted to accompany him. Since QMC is just right across the Quezon City Hall, we decided to park the car there then Ykaie and I will wait for him while he does his business.
It’s actually just our second time at QMC. The first time was a couple of weeks ago when we accompanied my nanay to buy plants. Nanay and I roamed around and bought Chrysanthemums and Pansies while peanutbutter♥ and the kids (Ykaie, Cyra, and Cyvrine) went off to the playground. I was surprised that QMC had such a big playground. It’s perfect for families because it’s free and the kids can do active play.
Since nanay can’t stay there long because she tires easily, I told Ykaie we’ll just go back there in the near future. I saw a chance to take her back when peanutbutter♥ had to go to Quezon City Hall. We parked the car near the restaurants and that’s a bit far from the location of the playground. We had to walk for a few minutes and we passed by this part of QMC where there are built in fitness equipments. I was surprised and was quite pleased. There were twisters, cycling machines, and others. Not the kind that you see inside gyms but enough to perform what they were built for.
Ykaie enjoyed playing at the playground, she wanted the slides, mostly. When we got tired, we bought some snacks and refreshments. I had Ginataang Halo-Halo for ₱20…LOL!
Right across the playground were some Kiddie Rides. There’s an entrance fee of ₱20 and then you have to pay for the rides that you want. I told Ykaie she can choose only one ride because her daddy’s gonna be finished soon. She chose the Go Kart. The fee was ₱70 for 15 minutes.
She owned the race track since it’s a weekday and enjoyed her 15 minutes pedalling her way around. I enjoyed seeing her having fun.
I know QMC is a place we’ll be back to over and over again.
cool! Super duper level up na pala ang QC circle! Galing!:-)
Dominique Goh says
so cool that there are go-karts at the park for the kids to try out. So fun.
Mommy Pehpot says
asan ung exercise equipments? LOL
anong oras po kaunti ang tao jan? May bayad po ang playground?
Mommy Peach says
Nasa paligid-ligid lang ng park. Weekdays kaunti ang tao at FREE ang playground!
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
What a cool playground that is. My kids love spending time at playgrounds like this. Glad you guys had fun!
Terri Ramsey Beavers says
This is a super cool playground. I love taking the kids to play at our local playground but it’s not as nice as this.
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
You know, posts like this really bring home that no matter how different we all are, we are still very much the same. Look at that park. It’s everything you’d see in a park in the states. Go-karts are a universal language!
Amy Ditmore says
Oh wow, we live in t tiny town and have NOTHING even close to something like this. I love all the colors, and I would so ride one of those little go carts lol.
Looks very beautiful and sounds like a good place to have fun for both kids and adults.
omg!!! This looks like an awesome playground!! I wish playgrounds where I lived had go karts! My princess would have a blast!
Chubskulit Rose says
That looks like a fun place for the kids. I am sure my kids would have a blast there just like Ykaei!
That looks so much fun to visit! I love go karts too – but my boys’ legs were a little too short to peddle themselves last time and I ended up pushing!
Liz Mays says
That place sounds like a ton of fun! I think that race track might be the coolest thing about it!
Diana Villa says
Your children look so happy! Such a beautiful and fun place ^_^
Bonnie @ wemake7 says
QMC looks like a wonderful place to take the family. Looks like your kiddos had a great time. =)

You took some awesome pictures! Playing with my kids at the park is my favorite.
michele d says
What an awesome playground for kids. Wow. I’ve never seen anything like that before.
Liz Leiro says
This seems like a really awesome park! Some of my favorite memories are going to the park with my grandparents and playing on the swing. I can’t imagine how awesome it must be to have a whole “race track”!
The little go kart things look really cool, this place looks very fun!
Ann Bacciaglia says
This looks like a fantastic place to take the kids to play. My kids had a similar park they went to when they were little.
That playground looks like it would be a lot of fun especially on a weekend like that when it’s relatively empty. The whole race track looks amazing too, but I can imagine that portion of it being hectic during the weekend. Glad your little one enjoyed herself!
Elizabeth O. says
Looks like she had fun! Can’t wait for summer, so the kids can play outside…
Kori Tomelden says
That is such a fun looking park! We have a decent one near to us, but because of the weather haven’t been recently.
Cherri Megasko says
Oh my goodness! That looks like so much fun. Why didn’t they have stuff like this when I was a kid? LOL
omg this park looks like it would be a lot of fun. There’s so much fun activities for the kids to do.
Yona Williams says
I love a good playground with lots of different areas and activities. Brings back the days when we used to play during recess in elementary school. Omgoodness…my nephew is missing out – they recently took away recess from the schools.
Amazing photos! Looks like a great place to visit!
My husband dreams of visiting the Philipines one day. He had a friend in the army that was from there and several others who traveled there a lot after they got out. It’s gorgeous.
That looks like such a fun park! I’ve never rode a gokart before, but it looks like a good time. 🙂

This looks like a super fun place for the kids to play. So much to do and see!
