    Fernbrook Gardens

    by machomikemd Updated Aug 2, 2014

    Fernbrook Gardens is just a stone's throw away from Evia Lifestyle Center and is located along the Daang Reyna Road, lying perpendicular to the Daang Hari Road. This place is like a large European Style Palace with sprawling gardens and the place is used mostly as a venue for weddings, baptisms, any kind of large parties and gatherings as the place has many function rooms designed in a generic french-viennese ambiance and it has it's own church too. So if you happen to have a local friend who will be married or will have a child baptismal and party there, get an invite.

    address is: Portofino South, Daang Reyna, Las Pinas, Metro Manila, Philippines

    according to their website:

    FERNBROOK GARDENS is the Latest Brainchild of Al de Veyra. The same visionary that designed and created Fernwood Gardens in Metro North. Not only did he create a niche for garden reception venues, rather Al de Veyra has become a notable example by virtue of the standards of which Fernwood has been most famous for. Guided by the same tradition of exellence and wealth of experience. He brings forth Fernbrook Gardens an events venue south of the Metro.

    GREAT NEWS! FERNBROOK is now only within 25 minutes drive from the Magallanes Skyway. We are happy to announce that the SLEX Skyway Exits to Alabang and South Avenue are now open. Taking South Ave. Exit that will take you right into Alabang-Zapote Rd. Make a left turn into Daang Hari where the Honda dealership on the left side. We are on the left turn before the Petron Station, subdivision of Portofino
