Forbes Park, Makati

Forbes Park, also known simply as Forbes, is a private subdivision and gated community in Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Established in the 1940s, Forbes Park was named after William Cameron Forbes, an American Governor-General of the Philippines. It is divided into Forbes Park North and Forbes Park South by McKinley Road and is bounded roughly by Epifanio de los Santos Avenue to the northwest, Bonifacio Global City to the east, the Maricaban Creek to the south and southeast, and Acacia Avenue/Dasmariñas Village to the west. One of the first villages to be developed by Ayala Corporation, Forbes Park is home to Manila Golf and Country Club and Manila Polo Club. It is also well known for housing some of the country's wealthiest families and prominent expatriates, including the ambassador of the United States, the ambassador of Japan, the ambassador of France, the ambassador of Spain, the ambassador of the United Kingdom and the ambassador of Kuwait. The average home price in this exclusive neighborhood is upwards of US$5,000,000.

Forbes Park, together with Dasmariñas Village, et al. form the Makati Inter-Village Association headed by Dasmariñas Village Association (DVA) President Raymund Bryan O. Manaloto.

The Santuario de San Antonio, a Franciscan church, and San Antonio Plaza, a small commercial center, lie between North and South Forbes Park. Meanwhile, the Church of the Holy Trinity, an Anglican-Episcopal Pro-cathedral, is just across the street.
