Like a city that keeps on growing, SM City Clark in Pampanga never fails to fascinate us with its new and amazing attractions. Starting out as a 101,840 square- meter mall when it opened in 2006, it now sprawls at 308,909 square meters. It has likewise evolved into a complex, which now includes BPO Towers, a Tech Hub, a Park Inn by Radisson Hotel, National University, and SMX Convention Center.
The latest addition is the Sky Line, an elevated Bridgeway which brings a brand new state-of-the-art experience four meters above the ground.
Inspired by New York’s iconic High Line, it is similarly designed as a “living system” that highlights landscape architecture, urban design, and ecology; as well as art, fitness, and fun for family and friends.
Located along the north edge of the SM City Clark mall, the Sky Line connects and integrates the widest possible variety of buildings with lush landscapes and attractions. But, beyond acting as a connector, the SM Clark Sky Line is envisioned to be a destination by itself – an ideal location to relax, get some exercise, take a selfie, and enjoy nature.
The Sky Line’s lush landscape includes hundred-year-old acacia trees that were preserved and incorporated into the design. It also showcases a diverse range of plant species – Picarra, Dwarf Pandakaki, Palmera, Spiderlily, White Kamuning, and Yellow Iris.
The park’s myriad of features and activities in multiple zones – retail, restaurants, art, fitness – feature separate offerings, each with his own character and landscape, as well as programmed activities carefully planned to delight, interest, educate, and entertain.
Attractions include a Paw Park for our furry friends, a Fitness Area with an outdoor gym, a Tree Park where one can dine amidst tree houses, art installations and more.
