A beautiful, well-constructed living space is important to any family — but a welcoming and supportive community is even more so. For most people, having both is a dream, but for the residents of DMCI Homes’ development in Bicutan, Siena Park Residences, it’s the reality they experience and enjoy every day.
With 11 mid-rise buildings set against a landscaped property off the West Service Road in Parañaque, Siena Park Residences is a quiet haven for urban dwellers. The palm tree-shaded leisure pool, breezy lounge area, and lush greenery create a feeling of relaxation and escape.
As if coming home to a vacation every day isn’t enough, residents also enjoy the benefit of being part of a homeowners’ community. With the support of the development’s Property Management Office (PMO), families enjoy an active social calendar, participating in various events such as Sunday Mass, educational seminars, and even traditional Filipino events such as Flores de Mayo. These activities are rarely celebrated these days in the city, let alone in condominium communities.
Most recently, the PMO organized an out-of-town trip for the community, taking them to Gourmet Farms in Silang, Cavite one Saturday morning.
Among the families who joined the trip were business owner Patricia Jane Sia-Isla and her eight-year old daughter Janel.
Patricia, who owns the Shane & Jai Chocolate Store in Quezon City, moved from Singapore to Siena Park Residences around four years ago. Since moving in, she has been an active member of the community.
“Our set up [in Singapore] is very much like what we have in Siena. The difference is, when you go out you can talk to a lot of people,” shared Patricia. “I always meet with my friends. When I bring my daughter to school, on my way back, I end up talking to a lot of people.”
According to Patricia, the community is able to flourish because of the regular events that are backed by the PMO. She shared that it isn’t difficult to contact them or ask them for help whenever the homeowners have ideas for new projects or activities.
“We always get support from the PMO. They help us organize.”
