The possibilities are endless when you live close to nature.

You can opt to explore your community by way of hiking or running, which can double as a way to keep fit. You can choose to learn more about nature by visiting nearby parks and sanctuaries. You can take advantage of your community’s cleaner and fresher air and take up gardening.

Residents of Las Colinas Verdes in Eden, Davao, will thus never run out of things to do in the area.

The latest offering from trusted property developer Sta. Lucia Land Inc. (SLLI) is located in Brgy. Eden in Toril, lovingly referred to in the province as the “Tagaytay of Davao.”

Here, homeowners will be treated each day to scenic mountain views, cooler weather and fresh air. The climate in Las Colinas is excellent especially for growing plants and those who want to engage in leisure farming.

The prime development is in close proximity to Eden Nature Park, a mountain resort 3,000 ft above sea level. The park has quite a number of attractions and activities to choose from. Do the Birdwalk and listen to the chorus of different bird songs as you walk through the various aviaries, or visit the Deer Park and get to observe over 30 Philippine deer as they graze and frolic among trees and shrubs in their natural habitat.

You may take a stroll at Eden Nature Park’s Flower Garden where colorful blooms will surely charm you, follow the Hiking Trail and go on an adventure on the ravine walks and boulder paths or have a breathtaking view of the Davao Gulf from Lola’s Garden.

The park has its Butterfly Garden where you can discover fun facts about the dainty winged creatures and get to know more about our local species.

Enrich your understanding of the Mindanaoan culture at the park’s Tinubdan, a 5,000-sqm cultural park where one can have a glimpse of the customs, traditions, beliefs and way of life of the indigenous peoples of Mindanao.

Visitors at Eden Nature Park who are into extreme activities meanwhile can try the Skyswing, Skyrider and Skycycle which will definitely give you that adrenaline rush. There’s also horseback riding and a fishing village.

With a “neighbor” like Eden Nature Park, there will never be a dull moment living at Las Colinas.
