Although it's not big as the other parks around the metro, this is definitely a place where history meets enchanting landscape. It's not crowded and very quiet and peaceful inside. It has an entrance fee of Php 10 per person. Perfect place to read a good book and just stroll around. Truly an escape to busy working and bustling city!

Romantic garden. Experienced to watch a wedding ceremony during my visit into this place. I was lucky that they let me in.

I like Paco Park because it's quiet and peacefull. It's not crowded like other parks. It used to be a cemetery. There's a small chapel which is still being used on Sundays. There's a small fee to get in.

If you would like to have a respite from the noise and busy life of Manila, go enter the peaceful and quiet place of Paco Park for a fee cheaper than a burger! The place was a former cemetery of Manila's moneyed clan and it also holds a special place in our history. This is where the remains of Dr.... More

The serenity of the place is perfect for wedding venue for those couples who wanted their wedding to be peaceful and solemn. The old themed surrounding draws us back to the realm of spanish empire, also perfect for a dinner date.

Good place to read a book, eat ( just please clean after yourselves ) and just stroll around. I've always loved the ambience of this place, with all the trees and shrubs it's sure to relax just about anyone.

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
