This park is named after the country's national hero and has his statue in the centre. It is surrounded by a large grassy area. The paths leading to the statue were blocked off you couldn't get within 100 metres of it. The reason was not apparent. There isn't anything else to see except for some garden you had to pay... More

before the heat of the day ---Rizal Park, is a historical urban park located along Roxas Boulevard, adjacent to the old walled city of Intramuros -- you can get a real feeling for the people here --and most are extremely polite in dealing with foreigners

I stumbled onto this great park on my way to Intramuros and was surprised to find such a fun and lively atmosphere. There are people taking picnics, grandparents with their families, and overall this was a fun find.

A nice park to visit to learn a bit of Philippines history. When at park pay the Php50 entry fee to actually see the spot where Jose Rizal was executed (shot) by the Spanish. Before being executed he was under 24 hour guard. Rizal is still under 24 hour guard even now you can see this with the park Rizal... More

A short distance from the walls of Intramuros, an ordinary mediocre park, nothing short of that. The main feature of this park is undoubtedly the huge statue in the center of the square, there is no shade here and the grueling heat and humidity in a nutshell is a pain. Just enough time to take some pictures and go away.

I am photographer so I was great to capture a slice of Manila life. People are so friendly. Early is best but it is also pretty during the day just not as interesting.

On my initial visit to Manila I chose a hotel right across from Rizal Park. It is a very large park with many different attractions to enjoy or just to have a nice stroll or picnic. Of course the focus is to memorialize Jose Rizal who is a national hero for the Filipino people. Many of the attractions are centered... More

This can be a very relaxing outdoor park with its' monument of Roxas Boulevard. An excellent area for a stroll or walk in park. Just to observe and see people milling around contributes to a lively atmosphere.
