Paco Park, Manila

3.4
#5 of 13 in Parks in Manila
Relax in the tranquil and historic Paco Park. This large recreational park has a fascinating history dating back to the Spanish colonial period, when a cholera epidemic forced the Dominicans to build a new cemetery in Manila. After being used as a supply depot during World War II, the park was converted into a national park in 1966 and the remains of those buried there transferred to other cemeteries. Today the park still contains a small chapel, making it an incredibly popular venue for weddings, receptions, and concerts. Find an empty bench, enjoy the peace and quiet, and watch couples enjoying a romantic sunset stroll. For Paco Park and beyond, use our Manila trip website to get the most from your Manila vacation.
