Bloomfield Mabalacat Phase 1 - LOCATION
Bloomfields Phase 1 is Located at Mabalacat, Pampanga.
The City of Mabalacat, or Mabalacat City, is a relatively young city located in the province of Pampanga. This former municipality was finally converted officially into a city through a referendum passed in July 21, 2012. Mabalacat is the third city in the province, after Angeles City and San Fernando City.
The 2015 census states that this city has a population of slightly over 250,000 citizens. The total land area for this province is 83.18 square meters (or 32.12 square miles). One of the key destinations in Mabalacat City is the Clark Freeport Zone, a redevelopment of the former Clark Air Base. This area used to be a major United States Air Force base in the Philippines. This 4,400-hectare zone (and neighboring 27,600-hectare sub-zone) is transformed into a key industrial, commercial, and leisure zone with the Clark International Airport as its transportation hub. This zone is home to a wide variety of commercial establishments, hotels, casinos, resorts, and golf courses. Ninety-six percent of the Clark Freeport Zone is located within Mabalacat City.
The city of Mabalacat is located 93 kilometers (or 58 miles) away from Manila, around 10 kilometers (or 6.2 miles) away from Angeles, and 27 kilometers (or 17 miles) away from Pampanga’s provincial capital, San Fernando City.
Mabalacat is divided into 27 barangays, with Dau—one of the most recognizable stopovers for those traveling up north—as its biggest. This barangay is the most urban and most populous in Mabalacat City, serving as the home to roughly 23 percent of the population.
This city is also one of the richest in the province of Pampanga. Most of its funds are derived from real estate taxes, municipal license fees, Internal Revenue allotments, and funds for roads and bridges. The number of businesses in the city are also growing. Eleven banks serve the city’s financial and trading needs, with most of them found in Dau.
Aside from being a growing urban area in the heart of Central Luzon, Mabalacat is also a major transportation hub that connects the National Capital Region to the rest of Northern Luzon. A number of main road networks run through the city, including the North Luzon Expressway (also known as NLEX), the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and MacArthur Highway. Also located within the city (in its southern corner) is the Dau Bus Terminal, which brings thousands of passengers bound for Metro Manila and key provinces in Northern Luzon, including Tarlac, Pangasinan, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Bataan, Zambales, La Union, and Nueva Ecija.

The city fiesta, on the other hand, celebrates the legendary discovery of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus in the woods that once covered Mabalacat.
