I visited Paco Park as part of a guided tour. Paco Park is a very serene sanctuary in the middle of the hustle and bustle and ongoing chaos of Manila. Paco Park also has a memorial to Rizal - a great Philippine hero.

Not a popular park, but delightful nevertheless. The gardens are generally attractive, though parts of it show signs of neglect, with scrubby plants and rubbish scattered in corners. Hawkers and street people hang around, though not bothersome. Generally, people are good natured and get on with their business. Worth a quiet wander.

Smallest park I've been to.I loved its circular architecture. It feels like I traveled back in time, the ambiance is very good.

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.

We went here to see the final resting place of Jose Rizal, the Philippine national hero. This park is small, but very well maintained. It has an entrance fee of 10 pesos, and it's not crowded and very quiet and peaceful inside. There are a few benches where you can sit inside and there's also a small chapel inside, where... More

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
