  • This is the place for everyone. Scenic, historical, city-life... From brisk - walk to hard-core jog, you can do it here. Food carts are available on strategic locations but if you are on a budget, you can can always bring your own home-cooked meals and bring the whole family to have a picnic and watch the beautiful fountain show. National Historic Building, Planetarium, Manila Ocean Park, Quirino Grand Stand are only short walk.
  • Amazing place to visit and relax. Please visit the Rizal monument. It will be worth seeing Philippine history. The different gardens give awesome experiences. Try to visit all.
  • Historical place. Visiting in the afternoon (around 4pm onwards) is the perfect time to relax and unwind. Museums are within the vicinity, a playground with a small entrance fee is also within the park and Manila Ocean Park can be reached on foot from here.
  • Rizal Park is very pleasant and surrounded by museums and historical monuments, It has a floating map of the whole of the Philippine Islands with all the mountains showing which i found fantastic. It is clean and peaceful. The is a train that can take you around the park, various small food stalls and all in all enjoyable.
  • A must visit park in Philippines, local and foreign visitor can spend a whole day activity filled with historical values and historical significance in the heart of old metropolis Manila, where National Museum are very near and strategically side with side with different parks and garden and monumental markers
