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.

Historical place in Manila. I go to the church inside Paco Park every Sunday. If you want to go around, there is an entrance fee of Php5.00. This place is clean and well maintained. Highly recommended!

Paco Park is a perfect hideaway if you want to escape from the noise and pollution of the city. The lush area gives a refreshing feel with the tall old trees, bushes, and flower gardens within the vicinity. The water fountain is beautifully lighted at night, hence, exuding a romantic ambience. This is the reason why it appeals to dating... More

I was here on the 3rd Friday of October to watch a concerto. The place has changed - it seems more lit at night now (but still dark on the outside wall area and may not be even safe to walk around if you have poor vision, you could fall), the center garden area with the fountain is still nice...
