Washington SyCip Park is a privately owned public park near Greenbelt mall in Legaspi Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. The park opened in 2006, and was named after Filipino accountant and banker Washington SyCip.[1] In addition to many indigenous tropical trees and plants, the park contains gazebos and recreational spaces.

The park is open daily from 06:00 to 22:00 PST (GMT+8). It is a no-smoking, no pet zone.[2]


Washington SyCip Park is rectangular in form, bounded by Legazpi Street to the north, Gamboa Street to the south, Rada Street to the west, and the Corinthian Plaza carpark to the east. It is close to Greenbelt shopping centre, the Asian Institute of Management, Legazpi Active Park and Union Church of Manila.


Washington SyCip Park was created in 2006 by Ayala Land. The park was presented to SyCip in June 2006 (his 85th birthday), in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the Philippine business community.

The park was developed jointly by Ayala Land Incorporated, the Makati Commercial Estate Association (MACEA), the City of Makati, Barangay San Lorenzo, and Washington SyCip's SyCip Gorres Velayo & Co., the largest accounting and consulting firm in the Philippines.[3] The headquarters of MACEA is located in the northern edge of the park.

In 2017, the park underwent a seven-month renovation which was finished in December.[4]


A number of sculptures by Filipino sculptor and artist Impy Pilapil can be found in the park. These include:[5]
