Ayala Land, Inc., in partnership with Leonio Land, is launching its latest large-scale, integrated mixed-use development in Porac, Pampanga called Alviera, a 1,125-hectare township designed to seamlessly combine urban living with nature. The first of Alviera’s attractions is SandBox, which offers visitors memorable outdoor experiences from a number of attractions and adventure courses.
1. What is SandBox at Alviera?
SandBox is Alviera’s first main attraction. We have something for people of all ages, making the SandBox ideal for fun activities with family and friends.
First up is the Giant Swing, the country’s tallest swing. Each swing can accommodate three guests at a time and creates the back and forth movement at 10-meter above the ground
The Aerial Walk Challenge is a high rope adventure course of nets and rope walkways. The Aerial walk is a series of activities that will test each users’ agility, balance and flexibility. An active guest can make his way through this course in about 30 minutes.
We also have Avatar One, the Philippines’ first roller coaster zipline. One doesn’t just zip down the 180-meter (length) course but zigzags along starting from 12 meters high.
The Adventure Tower is a 5-storey structure that consists of various activities such as rappelling, wall climbing, jump off for the free fall, jump off for the roller coaster zip line and the view deck.
The SandBox also offers ATV and mini-ATV rides, a themed kiddie playground with picnic areas, mini-golf, camping sites, a courtyard and an open field for field sports and other outdoor activities.
2. What would you advise visitors to the SandBox?
We would advise them to get ready for an unbeatable outdoor experience. There are very few outdoor fun facilities in the country of this quality that are comparatively near city centers. We are 1.5 hours away from Quezon City, an hour away from Meycauayan, 45 minutes from Subic, 25 minutes from Angeles and five minutes from Clark. It’s easily accessible from NLEX and SCTEX.
SandBox is the perfect place for family picnics, team-building sessions, sports and active lifestyle enthusiasts, outdoor hobbyists and outings with friends. The facilities and attractions are all about having fun in the sun so it’s best to be prepared for a sunny and windy time in the outdoors.
3. Why did you decide on Porac for this project?
The experience at SandBox gives one a taste of what’s to come upon the full development of Alviera. We envision Alviera to be the regional growth center of Central Luzon complete with commercial district, business and industrial park, university zones, retail centers, a country club, recreational areas and residential neighbourhoods.
Porac presents a scenic and gentle terrain that will be well-suited to creating a well balanced green community. We’ve targeted the launch of this new township by September of this year.
4. What else can we expect in the SandBox this summer?
This is probably the longest summer for many of our students so we’ve got a lot for them to enjoy. We have a rock concert with Bamboo set for our public launch on April 12.
