Centris Walk, a 12-hectare mix-use complex in Quezon City would surely catalyze big changes in the environs of the previously stagnant area of land along Edsa near corner Quezon Avenue. Because of its strategic location, it is destined to be a major destination in Quezon City for dining, lifestyle and entertainment.
Now open to the public, the exciting strip boasts high-end dining institutions and coffee shops. Among them are Asya, Italiannis, MyThai, Pancake House, Pho Hoa, Tutti Frutti, The Coffee Bean, and Jack's Loft.
And because children's playground is made to be an integral part, Centris Walk is also an excellent weekend hide-away for the family.

(see also: by train and by bus & jeepney)
From south of Metro Manila e.g. Alabang, Pacita, Metropolis Star Mall, Filinvest Mall, Ayala Alabang and southern tagalog provinces of Laguna, Batangas and Quezon. Take the skyway and exit in Magallanes. Turn right onto EDSA via Magallanes interchange. Stay to the middle of EDSA and drive all the way to Quezon City, passing through Ayala Tunnel, Cubao tunnel and flyovers of Ortigas, Santolan and Kamuning-EDSA.
After passing through EDSA-Kamuning flyover, next flyover is Quezon Avenue-EDSA flyover. Avoid passing through that flyover by changing lane to the right but since the right lane is for buses and jeepneys, do it while nearing the foot of the flyover. Entrance to the Centris Walk is visible momentarily.
From north of Metro Manila, e.g. Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela as well as Bulacan and Pampanga - Take EDSA all the way to Quezon Avenue. Stay to the middle of EDSA, crossing the Congressional/Roosevelt intersection in Munoz and West Avenue where SM City North Edsa is located to your left. After West Avenue, you must avoid passing through Quezon Avenue-EDSA flyover. Take the right lane of EDSA and pass through the ground level intersection of EDSA and Quezon Avenue. Make a U-Turn on the U-Turn slot next to Quezon Avenue and EDSA junction. After the U-Turn you must turn right onto Quezon Avenue but stay to the right turning lane, do not take the wide main Quezon Avenue that will bring you way too far and lost your way.
