Rizal Park and close by Intramurous is a place of serenity, where you can unwind from the traffic all around in Manila. It`s worth to go there, especially at the end of the afternoon, early evening. This park is an example of how Filipino families, like to spend their time, with their relatives. Having a pick nick on the grass... More

What a spectacular piece of heaven in the middle of bustling Manila. To stroll around Rizal Park was a wonderful way to spend a few hours.

This is a great park in the centre of an urban jungle and it gives a good feeling of space, light and air (as best it can in a city). Large enough to walk around and feel like you've had a decent stroll There are also Chinese gardens to visit, which I didn't, and plenty of food places in walking... More

Great place to spend a Sunday, families out, friendly, people eating, talking, playing games. A number of interesting things to see in and around the park. It may be Rizal Park, but is dominated by an impressive statue of the first Filipino hero Lapu Lapu. I'm sure most families can find something to keep the children interested here and it... More

When I visit a new city I like to study some of the history. A visit to Rizal Park is a welcome break away from the busy street life of Manila (the most densely populated city in the world!), but it is also very important in terms of history. Dr Jose Rizal, the Filipino hero of independence, was executed here... More
