Located along Roxas Boulevard in Ermita Manila, Rizal Park also known as Luneta Park is a historical place of the City of Manila. A monument of our national hero Jose Rizal is a landmark. Once in Manila, you should never forget having a photo on this legendary monument. On the north side of this landmark is the old walled city... More

"You have never been to Manila if you do not have a picture at Rizal Monument." This is what I always tell my foreign visitors. This is where I start my Manila tour. I am not a tourist guide but loving Philippine history, I am confident to act as tourist guide. The only sad thing now at Rizal Park is... More

The Rizal Park, or Luneta Park as it used to be called is a vast space which could truly become a citizens' park if only more design sense is put into it. The park should be able to attract even locals who could stay the whole day. Unfortunately one can only stay awhile for lack of basic facilities. The only... More

My wife and I visit Razal Park every time I go to Manila, great place for family outings or for quality time with a loved one as we do. Great for picnic under shade tree then when night arrives we sit to listen to music and watch the dancing fountains, a little romance never hurt anyone lol.

Rizal park is beautiful but if you need to go to the bathroom, you have to wash your butt with water and hand, because they don't have tissues.

Not a huge amount to see. I couldn't find the entrance to the Rizal execution site, which looked quite nice area. I would recommend going to the fort museum to understand a bit about Rizal and his execution and how it ignited a nation.
