A small park for local people, especially teenagers. The locals come here and have a relax time. The entrance fee is 10 peso. It takes only for about 3min. to walk in whole park. There is an old church (but can't enter in), beautiful green leaves and flowers, but I can't recommend to visit here. Here isn't a place you... More

The surrounding of the church is quite peaceful, there is a small fountain in the middle which was nice, but unfortunately not always kept maintained.

Nice clean and peaceful monument/park with a few flowers. A little out of the way. Worthwhile if you are close. Former burial site for Rizal.

Whilst inside Paco Park, you can almost forget that you are in a not so great part of town in the big bad city of Manila. It is a walled place that has a domed shaped chapel. So many picturesque spots in here. The whole setting looks so whimsical and almost fairy tale like. It only costs a measly ten... More

Peaceful cemetery and resting place of National Heroes with ghastly pop music blaring out of cheap loudspeakers. Very Strange

Whether Rizal's body is still here is debatable but few could argue that Paco Park is not a beautiful walled space in one of the world's largest cities by population. The entrance fee of P10 is miniscule compared to what I was recently charged in ripoff Sri Lanka for similar attractions. As i was staying at Oasis Paco Park Hotel... More

On arrival the signs show this to be Paco Cemetery which it is alongside being a memorial park. Rizal's gravestone is here yet according to a local guide his body is no longer there so it is a bit confusing. A beautiful mausoleum with great light on the windows but no access inside. The locals use it as a park... More

Paco Park was located directly across from the Oasis Paco Park Hotel where we stayed so it would have been criminal to not stop by for 10 pesos. We were glad we did because between reading about Rizal's execution at Fort Santiago the day before and then seeing his grave here, some of the Philippine history really started to come... More

A nice little cemetery, well worth the 10 pesos entry fee. All well laid out and clean, an oasis in the city. Could do with more info inside, so do your homework before visiting if you really want to understand the place. Unfortunately the church was firmly padlocked when we visited.
