A Metro Bambusetum as a Living Museum Park
Since the City has been renowned for the Bamboo organ, Congresswoman Cynthia Villar felt a living museum called a Bambusetum would be a good accompanying tourist destination. On July 27, 2005, she inaugurated the project and planted one of the first bamboo plants.

The Bambusetum is a protected area wherein different varieties of bamboo are grown and showcased.

No other city in the metropolis can boast of having a Bambusetum with different varieties growing along the riverbanks from the exotic “black” bamboo to the Japanese dwarf varieties.

As such, the place has turned into a favorite destination for students to have a picnic, appreciate nature, and value the river.

The Bambusetum serves to further educate the next generation on the importance of the environment, and how interdependent

This efficiency earned Las Piñas the “Clean and Green Hall of Fame” Award.
