Over the past years, Metro Manila has seen life beyond the cityscapes with more spaces being introduced to cater to the demand of today’s urban dwellers who seek work-life balance.
While there has been a rise in the number of facilities that cater to these urbanites, these are still mostly in enclosed spaces. From traditional gyms to fitness and wellness centers, and warehouses that have been converted into sports complexes, these facilities lack the open and breathable spaces which are vital for one to truly live a work-life-play balance.
This is where the CV Sports Hub makes its mark.
A recreational sports center in a green community
At the heart of Circulo Verde, a 10-hectare mixed-use estate in Quezon City which offers residential spaces along with retail establishments and open and breathable spaces, lies CV Sports Hub. A multi-use recreational sports center, the facility is designed to complement the lifestyle of the active and healthy community, as well as sports enthusiasts.
The CV Sports Hub boasts top-notch facilities catering to different interests of sports enthusiasts: The Bike Playground, CV Quad, and CV Pitch.
