Take a trip down memory lane as Bonifacio Global City brings us back to a time when the streets were the place where we made friends (and the occasional enemies) in this year’s My Street, High Street, which promises a fun and memorable larger-than-life experience that will surely be enjoyed by kids and kids-at-heart alike.
The center of commerce and culture in the Metro and known for its vibrant lifestyle, BGC is once again opening its streets to people to rediscover the thrill of playing outdoors. Covering all Sundays of the year beginning this March, 9th Avenue will be filled with larger-than-life games.
Trade away your mobile screens for a giant game of Jenga, Pick-up Sticks, or Snakes & Ladders; try out super-size toys such as Jack and the Giant Stones, dive into an inflatable ball pit; or enjoy classic Pinoy games such as Tumbang Preso and Piko.
And if that wasn’t enough, you can gather friends and wiggle your way through a game of Limbo rock, jump through Chinese garter, or shake those hips by hula hooping on the sidewalk.
“Here in BGC we always think of ways to promote a healthy and active street life for our BGCitizens,” said Sean Luarca, Marketing Manager at Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation (FBDC), the developer and master planner of BGC. “All of our projects within the BGC community create street camaraderie and in turn makes the street life of BGC dynamic and vibrant. With this My Street, High Street campaign, we encourage our BGCitizens to go out of their units and embrace the street lifestyle and have some real fun under the sun.”
Healthy fun under the sun
Outdoor play for kids is highly recommended by experts because it’s beneficial for their well-being and holistic physical development.
It lets them explore the environment and helps develop their motor skills, as well as build their self-confidence.
Whether you want to convince your kids or yourself to put down that smartphone or tablet for a fun day outside, or you’re just in for a healthy dose of nostalgia, BGC’s giant playground is the place to be during Sundays.
