This is a large landmark in Manila; a place worth going. Unfortunately, there is now an ugly apartment/condo/resort/whatever right in the the air space behind the monument. Lots of things seem to be under repair as well... The Chinese and Japanese gardens nearby were kind of nice and were inexpensive.

Stopped by this tour while on a day tour. Good to stop by, this is there the pope held a mass when he visited the Phillipines in Jan 15. Great big phillipine flag that's good to take a photo in front of.

here is where you can see Manilenos kicking back and having a great time. Well maintained green space, a relief from the city. If you're interested in urban history, you can really see the Daniel Burnham master plan at work in the park and its perimeter buildings.

Historical with nice views but next to one of the most polluting highways in Manila. It's free so it's a must visit

Spent quite some time watching the first annual croquet competition in the park, on our way through to Intramuros. Our local UK rules seem a bit different and we manage without a coach or a sunshade, but we do have to play in the rain and on fresh grass. Choose a path with a visible open exit out onto the...

OK....stay at Intramuros and go for a walk. Many walks in fact. But the longest should be to tour the Manila Hotel (I am a hotel guy, after all) and then to keep walking to this park. If you want on the Intramuros side (as opposed to the bay side) the walk way has imbedded in the concrete Rizal's footprints... More

On a day with a nice wind blowing the park is a wonderful oasis in the middle of the chaos that is the Ermita area. Enjoy a casual stroll with your loved one and retrace history. Take the time to read the placards along the paths.

A park in the middle of a city which needs a lot of green spaces. We can observe there a lot of people, the sea, the traffic and the monument of Rizal where there is a continuous gard of honorQ
