“take your time”

this park is worth a visit with many sculptures and statues including a map of the philippines carved into a lake. It is also the site of Jose Rizal's execution.

“The Premier Park of the Country...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I aprreciate the way they remodelled the relief map of the archipelago. :) Well, this park is really big, which is good if you want to just to kill your time walking. This is also a good place to do aerobics and jogging. I even saw some students who went there to practice dancing, cheering and other school related activities because this place is really big. As for me, I like this place because we usually go here to have a simple outdoor picnic with my family. <3
