“Great tribute to a National Hero”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Lots of walking. Don't get scammed by any of the vendors near or outside the park. They are all liars, thieves, cheats, and creeps.

“Good, but surrounding is better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The Shrine itself is nice, not stunning. But the park and surrounding area with a number of very tall buildings is much better and for sure worth the visit.

“The only best park in the country that improves yearly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The new renovations from the map of the Philippines having a walkway, cleaner looking monuments, and wide area of greenery which makes the visit refreshing after seeing the not-so-attractive side of Manila. Hopefully now it's alright to take pictures there for both locals and foreigners alike.

“Rizal Park - very impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Lunetta (Rizal) Park was very impressive with the statue, gardens and people in their droves.

Credit to the Manila town planners providing such a lovely area for their people to gather.
