Best to visit between November and February when the weather is fine. You will need an umbrella from March to May to shade you from the sun, and from June to October because of the rainshowers. It is Free to visit the park area. It is a small park, about an hour or so will be enough for a visit.... More

Park is large with lots to see. Went during week at noon. Few people in park, but looked like a place that would be busy during weekends.

A reminder that colonization of any form requires an intellectual response. Did not realize Rizal was murdered at a youthful age of 35.

Went here last Sunday with my husband. We decided to go during the night so we can avoid the heat of the sun while freely roaming the area without worrying of sunburns. Rizal's statue was highligted with Blue, Red and White lights... I think in support with the Paris attack. The park was jampacked! Vendors selling disposable mat for 20... More

A quiet and peaceful memorial park and a great place to wander and relax and to escape from the surrounding hustle and bustle of Manila

Seriously! You have a great obelisk build for Dr. Rizal, but you have a freaking building to ruin it!

If you are interested in learning a basic history of Manila and the country in general go to Rizal Park and look for an old man named Paul. He gave the park a fantastic depth and was more than appreciative of what we felt was a fair tip. Even if you don't want a tour, Rizal Park is still spectacular!... More

In the heart of the city, very close to the National Museum and Intramuros, the park is a wide open space of well manicured lawns and bushes. There are many statues to see, but the focal point is the musical fountain that operates at night with a light show. All around the park edge are gardens that require a ticket,... More

Visited the park with my husband and son. It was their first time. The park looked bigger than I remember it. Been here so many times for school field trips, and family outings. Much cleaner, and lots and lots of open spaces for kids to run around. There's also a train ride that will circle you around the park, for... More
