(320+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
A national park located within a sprawling traffic circle, Quezon Memorial Circle serves as the final resting place for the second official president of the Philippines. Filled with dense foliage spanning 15.6 ha (38.5 ac), the park boulevards all lead to the central pavilion, where the 66 m (217 ft) tall mausoleum soars into the sky. Relax away from fast-paced city life and amble through this verdant sanctuary, following paths through the trees and gardens to the impressive three-pylon monument. Climb its spiral staircase to an observation deck for panoramic views of the park and city. To visit Quezon Memorial Circle on your trip to Quezon City, use our Quezon City vacation route planner.

  • It beacons home and the circle is modern and understated but it is not a tourist destination -- it is a rotunda that is besieged by traffic jam. Homeless people stay and seek it as a refuge.  more »
  • I don't look at it as a park anymore because the surroundings have numerous nuisances like sidewalk vendors, tiangge, and scattered.  more »
  • we always go especially with our dad and always every morning for a jog with the dogs and to buy some more seedlings and plants.  more »

  • A place for jogging, exercising, family bonding, and photography (for your photography class) without spending a lot. There are also access to food stalls and restaurants. I just hope they improve the playground part and the track with exercise bars. There are also some small areas of the park with foul smell. Though, this place is visually amazing be it by day or at night.
  • This is a great place to jog. And unlike the UP Diliman campus, joggers have access to food and comfort rooms. The heat can be intense from around 10 am to 3 pm, though, so sightseeing is best done before or after those hours. Those who don't bring their own cars can get to the Circle (actually an ellipse) via the tunnel​ in front of Quezon City Hall.
  • Great place to exercise, walk, seat, read and talk. The green wall around the circle absorb all the traffic noice that you'll be surprised once you leave it. The monument itself is very impressive as well. Food and drinks available. Not touristy at all.
  • Manila - National Capital Region- is one of the most polluted metropolitan cities in the whole world. The colossal traffic (leaded gas is still available) of a 24 million people area, and the factories are responsible, and as well, the high level of corruption. Parks disappear one after the other, sold to developers. Quezon Memorial Circle is a national park, located in Quezon city, both named in memory of Manuel L. Quezon who was the 2nd President of the Philippines (1935-1944). That circle is a huge roundabout where millions of vehicles turn day and night in a fantastic cloud of exhaust and a crazy noise. Inside the park, you can find a few restaurants, a flower market and Manuel L. Quezon memorial that is also an interesting museum. The entry is free for Filipinos, and foreigners are kindly invited to put a little money in the money box. The park is large and pretty quiet, but unfortunately, it lacks of cleanliness, of trees, of shadow, the air is not perfumed by flowers, and our ears are not overjoyed by the sings of birds...
  • Nice peaceful space in the middle of otherwise hectic Quezon City. Good place to catch a jog. The memorial has a cool museum. The park is in the center of an insane-traffic 5 or 6 (or 7?) lane loop road. If you are on foot, there is a tunnel under the loop road to enter the park.
