A very wide park with Rizal's monument and the glorious flag of the Philippines. It's a pretty sight to look at, and the lush green grasses that covers the park is very calming. Nothing much to see but it is a very historical park.

It is a huge park with flag of the Philippines and some old and important people's statues. If you want you can visit Japanese and Chinese garden of flowers with entrance fee. Don't visit there at noon as it is too hot and if you don't visit the gardens, I highly recommend you to bring water and hat with you.... More

Rizal Park is as good as any Central city park around the world. The park has large open spaces and many features within to keep you interested.

This park is named after the country's national hero and has his statue in the centre. It is surrounded by a large grassy area. The paths leading to the statue were blocked off you couldn't get within 100 metres of it. The reason was not apparent. There isn't anything else to see except for some garden you had to pay... More

before the heat of the day ---Rizal Park, is a historical urban park located along Roxas Boulevard, adjacent to the old walled city of Intramuros -- you can get a real feeling for the people here --and most are extremely polite in dealing with foreigners

I stumbled onto this great park on my way to Intramuros and was surprised to find such a fun and lively atmosphere. There are people taking picnics, grandparents with their families, and overall this was a fun find.
