We happened to visit on the same day the Emperor and Empress of Japan were visiting, so there were LOTS of honor guards keeping tourists away from the main monument. So I visited some of the many busts surrounding the reflecting pool and learned a bit about the Philippines history and struggle for independence. There is a shaded sitting area... More

It is very difficult to appreciate Luneta Park at its present state if you grow up knowing how it was before. The Luneta of today is just a big open space in the heart of the city with some memorable landmarks that managed to survived the ravages of time. I am still gripped with nostalgia when I pass by the... More

They ask for admission fees for the comfort rooms and the children's playground. Its a good place to stroll, hang out, jog, exercise, review history and have a... More

The park is well kept and it's nice to stroll and relax from the noise and pollution. I appreciate the sentiment of the park, buts I wouldn't venture out to specifically go here.

A great place to wander around for an hour or two. The gardens are nice, and lots of families there on Sunday having a picnic. Respect to the Marines guarding the shrine for Rizal

Yes it is just a park. and It contains some of the crucial, most important monuments for the Philippinos: For LapuLapu and for Dr. Rizal, the first and the last hero fighting against the Spanish. For tourists like me only important if really interested in history...

It's a nice big park for leisure walks but one can also learn some fun facts about the country's history and national hero, Jose Rizal. His monument is in the middle of the park. Go here when the heat of the sun is not too strong and if it is not raining. Students from nearby universities usually flock the park.... More

I was here for a martial arts training seminar. There are many martial arts groups that practice in the park on Sundays. I was mostly in the Chinese Garden area, but our group walked all around the park. Dress code in force, one man was asked to put a shirt on. Many Filipinos were gathered here this day. Very large...

Rizal park has the statue of Philippines national hero who was made a hero by the Americans. A whole park is dedicated to him in this Luzon area.
