This is one of the best places to go to if you want a nice view of Taal Volcano and lake. Entrance fee is Php 35 for parking, plus Php 50 per head. There are lots of shops where you can buy souvenirs, and cottages for rent if you're on a picnic. Otherwise you can simply dine at some of the eateries in the area. There's also a Ferris wheel and zipline. The viewing deck gives you a great view of Taal Volcano and lake. There's also an area for horseback riding. All in all, Picnic Grove is a nice place to visit. However, their toilets and payment area need a lot of upkeeping.

This is a nice wooded park on the ridge with several vista's, picnic tables, and shops. The shops tended to be similar and contained the usual souvenir/ tourist items - bottled water, magnets, shirts, key chains.

We entered on a trike and our driver was helpful telling us where to pay the entrance fee (50 php each). Otherwise, we would have been confused. We came for the ferris wheel, and that another 150 php each.

The ferris wheel was slow moving and tall, giving good views throughout the ride. However, it was squeaky, the windows worn, and the ride a little stuffy. Worth the price, but not something I would do again.

Zip lines and horse riding were other pay attractions.

We mostly enjoyed the views and vista's. The vendors selling seeds were polite. The horseriding sales were a little more pushy and usually needed two "no's" before they left.

Overall, it was a nice place to wander around, enjoy the views and breezes for an hour. Family picnics were very popular too.

We arrived at 3:00PM. It was nice, cold, and extremely windy day at Tagaytay! The entrance fee was 30 pesos (Around 0.80 Australian Dollars) There was a map by the entrance. Which was definitely useful for us.

There were many large tables scattered around the area which could seat around 6 to 8 people. Which is enough for a large group of friends or a family to go eat.

For bathrooms. There was enough around the area. But take note that they do require a fee of 10 pesos before you can use.

There were many attractions. There was horseback riding, which I did try myself. A fish spa, a zipline. And many more which we sadly didn't have time to visit.

However, the best area to visit here is the view deck which gave an IMMACULATE view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcano which was already worth the price of admission!

Overall, a nice place for anyone who wants to have a picnic or get a good view of the nearby lake

50% capacity ng tao. So if ever na-reah na nila ang capacity, nagsasara na sila ng gate. You need to wait at least 2-4 hrs para makapasok ka. Kasi mostly sa mga pumapasok ng umaga, hapon na lumalabas. Kids are allowed. Parking fee of P30.

First time ko makapunta dito and actually pumunta kami around 9am. Wala kami masyado nagawa since walang activities due to covid restrictions as in walang horse back riding zipline and such. And I don’t know we’re unlucky kasi hindi din nagpakita si taal that time. We even had lunch first and pagbalik namin wala padin talaga. Madaming construction ongoing. I think they are preparing to serve us better once the pandemic is over. Hmmm. You can check out my video posted in YT (Heidy Tolete)

Honestly I hate to use the word ugly but yes, this place is...dirty and seems like whoever's managing it is NOT doing its job well. Do not waste your time here and even your money. Entrance fee is 50 per head plus 35 for parking. As soon as we got inside I didn't even want to step out of the car but didn't have a choice. Place is dirty! I can't imagine how people can eat considering the tables amd surrounding is an absolute mess. The toilet is closed and from the looks of it, it looks awfully icky to the highest high. Take my word, it's not worth visiting the place for whatever reason.

Everybody knows this place. I’ve been here several times since I was young. My family enjoyed spending time here.

But now, I surely don’t plan to go back. Traffic is terrible.....

The saving grace is the view. This place could be improved if only it will be repaired or refurbished.
