This truly remarkable park, the right place to reminisce your identity where all its started as a truly loving people deriving from its national hero.

This is a nice and peaceful place in the middle of busy, traffic congested, polluted Manila. I enjoyed walking through the park and looking at all of the statues, even though some of the statues were surrounded by fences which meant you could not get up close or even read the plaque dedicated to the statue.

Was actually happy to be back, and seen the fountain show! A lot of people in the park celebrated post-Christmas celebration.

This is a park, there is not much special about this park aside from the statue and only worth going to if you are in the area but not to make a journey to.

A large but not particularly attractive park. Few areas of shade from the burning Manila sun. Lots of families visit to get away from the bustle and crowds of Manila. Generally safe but avoid single people who want to talk to you as often they want money or to sell you a scam.

You can take the LRT to Quiapo and then take a jeep to Luneta or Rizal Park. There you will see a tall statue of Lapu-Lapu (who supposedly killed Magellan), a model of the islands of the Philippines, Dr. Jose Rizal's monument facing the Luneta Grandstand where Pope Francis will be celebrating a mass when he visits in 2 wks....

It is a rather large expanse of green and trees that stretches from Taft Ave, all the way to the Baywalk. Can get crowded on weekends. Great for an early morning stroll

This is the area where Jose Rizal, accused of "treason against Spain" was executed by firing squad. The statue memorial is just great and is framed by a big park. Jose Rizal was a highly intelligent man of his time, he opposed Spanish rule of the Philippines using peaceful civil disobedience and dissent. Close by is the "Martyrdom" park, a... More

At night, there is a show of the dancing fountain, but it could be so crowded at night. And beware of snatches and pickpockets, always keep your bag... More
