Forbes Park, Makati
, also known simply as Forbes, is a private subdivision and gated community
in Makati City
, Metro Manila
. Established in the 1940s, Forbes Park was named after William Cameron Forbes
, an American Governor-General
of the Philippines. It is divided into Forbes Park North and Forbes Park South by McKinley Road
and is bounded roughly by Epifanio de los Santos Avenue
to the northwest, Taguig City
(Bonifacio Global City
and Fort Bonifacio
) to the east, the Maricaban Creek to the south and southeast, and Acacia Avenue/Dasmariñas Village
to the west.
The first gated village to be developed by Ayala Corporation, Forbes Park is home to the Manila Golf and Country Club and the Manila Polo Club. It has been called the "Beverly Hills of Manila" and many of the country's wealthiest families, as well as foreign diplomats, live there.
The Santuario de San Antonio, a Franciscan church, and San Antonio Plaza, a small commercial center, lie between North and South Forbes Park. Meanwhile, the Church of the Holy Trinity, an Anglican-Episcopalian pro-cathedral, is just across the street.
Italics indicate disputed areas (part of Fort Bonifacio).
