When I walked alone on the streets of Manila at night, I was scared a little, because everybody says it's dangerous out there. But then I bumped into this park. It astonished me, near the entrance there was a pond which has all the islands in the ponds with the shapes of the territory of Phillipines. Then keep on walking... More

This the largest public park in Manila and it does get rather crowded on weekends. Good for a long walk. there are more than a few historical sights to visit including the monument of the national hero Dr. Jose Rizal. take in the sights, have a coffee and enjoy the breeze.

When visiting Manila your trip will not be complete without visiting Rizal park. Specially at night time its a nice place with colored fountains and a lot of people and gimmick. many food stands to eat simple things like a boiled egg or whatever. Its fun to be there. Looking for a romance or a date? you're on the right... More

A very clean walk around, plenty of wildlife, and some place to photograph about the history of Manila.

Used to be such a great place...now it is just old and dirty. I used to enjoy this park for its historical importance as well as its commemoration to Jose Rizal, however, not it just feels like an old dusty park.

This is like Monument Nasional in Jakarta, with its own history of Jose Rizal. It's such a good place to learn history, however, some surrounding area is not well maintained and it was Pretty sad. However, it's a must-visit place when you go to Manila.

This is the most horrible experience my dad and I have experienced when we were in Philippines last Nov. It’s a long one and it may take you some time to read it, however, I am sure it can be served as a warning for those who may travel to Manila in the future. I hope you can take strict... More

My fiance (then girlfriend) went for a walk through Rizal Park on a nice weekend afternoon and it was quite nice with one major exception. The Japanese and Chinese gardens had (fish?) ponds that were poorly maintained and absolutely putrid and a small fee was charged for entry into each one. Other than that the grounds are fairly well maintained... More
