This is a very small park and if it wasn't opposite my hotel I probably wouldn't visit it. There's not a lot to see although it's still a peaceful place to visit.

My friends got married here. Garden wedding is best during summer season. Celebration is solemn and the cost is much lower than church weddings.

Despite its history, it looks and is quite run down. Why would this even be listed? Well, I guess if you want to get away from the raw course of life outside its wall, come here and enjoy some time with friends. Not much else...More

Must visit when choosing a wedding church. The walled former cemetery park is romantic, shaded by old tall accacia tress. The inner walls are niches of infants who died from a plague. Jose Rizal was once burried here before being moved to Luneta

Shows and presentations at the Paco Park are not as structured as they used to be, so you will have to check with their Admin Office for show schedules. Sorry I could not say more.
