I am fascinated by the hundreds of tomb inside the park. Much as I found it historical, I wonder is weddings at the church inside the park are limited to themed wedding as "way back in time".

Best place to reminisce the past and picnic with the family. Good place for a date with someone you love. Paint the scenes and enjoy the afternoon with your friends. I too had the chnace to be alone and paint the scenes in lieu of photographs. Much more enjoying than any other activities by your lonesome.

Right at the center of Paco's residential area, Paco Park is the first burial place for Jose Rizal. Today, it houses a quiant small church and serves as a nice place for weddings and concerts. Great view, a nice piece of history.
