  • The biggest park in Manila. You'll see local citizens come here enjoying relaxing moments like picnics or exercise especially on weekends. Many students come rehearsal on their school activities. A small Chinese garden located one corner in the huge park. Nice place to stay in weekends.
  • Manila’s Rizal park is a great place to start your day. People arrive to walk and run about dawn. I prefer more rural river walks but smoke does not irritate my breathing here. Early morning with a breeze off the ocean this is a perfect location.
  • Near lots of museums, the children's playground etc. Doesn't have lots of shade, so go around afternoon to night. We enjoyed watching the kites and trying to fly our own. Clean up after the yourself. Try not to contribute to the pollution. It's great. Not much to see but glad it's there nonetheless.
  • This is a good place to visit with your family and friends. Especially now that three museums is easily accessible to the public. There are not a lot of options when it comes to dining though. So just keep that in mind.
  • Fine place, it is given as a homage to the Freedom fighter for Philippines revolution. Place is clean and nice too. It has a small museum also along one corner, you can try that as well, Moreover it's good for short walk in clean air
