I went to this park on a Sunday. You can see many locals come here to relax, especially families. It is great for people watching. This park has several quick stop attractions. The Jose Rizal Memorial park is small but nice. The Japanese and Chinese gardens are low quality, skip them unless they are free (during Chinese New Year-the Chinese... More

One of the reason why i always wanted to visit Manila. The place is clean and nice. I haven't imagine that the park itself is so huge.

Great water display with music, very popular in evenings, safe.plenty of shade. I found the cool of the evening the best time to visit when the water and music display was active. Traffic crossing the roads surrounding the park can be heavy so pedestrians should take care.

It is like an oasis in Manila, which is otherwise not that clean. The Rizal park is large, clean and beautiful. There is a lot of local people over the weekend.

This is a great place to spend with the family but it definitely gets hot. You can buy water and ice cream here. Make sure you see all the little side attractions like the Japanese garden. The kids park was the best and it was only 20 PHP I think. I enjoyed my visit there and going back again soon.

The park is a place where you can relax and have a nice walk just beware of the sun because not much protection there. It has few gardens like a Chinese and Japanese part. You can also see a part of the life of Rizal who was a Fillipino Nationalist and was executed. Very interesting to read more about this... More
