I was born in Manila, and I got to see how the Rizal Park has changed. The water fountains this time had music accompanying their dance. And the place was cleaner than the last time of my visit, which was about 3 years ago. The biggest change, though, from the time I was little, was this time, we can no... More

What particularly amused me is the dancing fountain found in the park at night, colorful and original songs being played at the background. this is really an easy way to have a... More

It is a wide park and picnicing, strolling or biking around ar the suggested activities here. If you want you can visit Japanese and Chinese garden of flowers with entrance fee. Don't visit there at noon as it is too hot and if you don't visit the gardens, bring hat and water when you go here though.
