“Full of rubbish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Better not to go here its a polluted place a of thugs,beggars,police are corrupt. There's nothing to see things which is worth your money to come here in the phillipines. Your life is in danger all the time.This the one of the very unpleasant place in the world. The government do nothing to improve their country. They just put the peoples money in their own pocket that why this crooked politician gets richer.

“An escape in the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Marikina River Park, and the whole bikeway, is an escape from the crowds and traffic of Metro Manila. Food is available at Riverbanks, and at little cafes/ resto-bars along the way. It is also easy to duck into Marikina proper through some side streets, and do some exploring there.
Unfortunately the river floods at times during rainy season, but the city is trying to keep the riverbank area clean, and open for use as much as possible.
An added highlight for our teenage daughter was the improvised mountain bike trails that run alongside the bikeway on the RIverbanks side of the river.

“À nice place!”

It has improved à lot. Concern for the environment and care for people is an honorable act. A nice venue with friends to hang out. Evening scenery is awesome. People are happy to be here.

“Great Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We usually go here to have biking. You can rent a bicycle for only Php 50.00 per hour. There are some bicycles for children as well. There are some tiange store in this area. Also you can enjoy different kinds of food like hot dog sandwich, hot dog on stick, siomai, barbeque and many more. This is for family as well.

“Hanging Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I am a local here, so from time to time, I passed by here and if on rest day sometimes I hang out here. I can tell that it has improved a lot and its a nice place to hang out as well because a lot of establishments were put up here. I like when it is summer because I see those trees with flowers that bloom with great color. There are also some nice food stalls where you can buy and eat while walking here, try it.
