Manila, Philippines, September 2020 - Having a healthy immune system is key to safeguarding yourself against COVID-19. The IATF recommends everyone to take extra measures in improving overall health and wellness by eating healthier meals, regularly taking vitamins and having a more active lifestyle. To support this protocol, San Juan City government and Brgy. Greenhills also launched pop up bike lanes within the city to provide a safer and healthier mode of transportation to its citizens.
With this, Greenhills Mall has recently launched the Active Playground that promotes a convenient space for bikers, joggers, and people who want to have a leisurely workout throughout the day. In an effort to accommodate the increase in bikers due to the limited transportation amidst this GCQ, Greenhills has also worked to create a bike-friendly zone for everyone.
“Ortigas Malls has always been promoting a more active lifestyle in all its malls. Since our launch of the internationally-acclaimed Bike Playground in 2017, we have been incorporating more open and active spaces within our malls,” says Arch. Renee Bacani, VP of Ortigas Malls. She adds, “Since most of us have been staying at home in the past months, it is important to find creative ways of staying active and fit even when going about our day-to-day lives, such as grocery shopping, dining out, or doing errands.”
Whether you’re biking for fitness, or biking to get your essentials, Greenhills now has dedicated bike lanes and bike parking. There are also signages placed throughout the center to guide bikers and to lead them to the designated parking spaces where they can lock their bikes before shopping. For those who bike for fitness, Greenhills will be providing dedicated bike lanes for bikers 24/7*.
Ortigas Malls has always encouraged everyone to continue to stay active and is constantly providing ways to motivate consumers towards a more fit and healthier lifestyle.
