About Rizal Park, Manila
Heart moving and incredibly beautiful, Rizal Park is Philippines’ dedication to its national hero Jose Rizal. The Park is great for atmospheric walks and a quality time with family and friends. Spread out over approximately 60 acres of greens, the Park boasts of ornamental gardens, ponds and heroic statues of some of the most celebrated people in Philippines. All around the park, visitors get a brush with history as they pass the glorious Rizal monument and the site where Rizal was executed. It’s touching to see the chronology of events that preceded his execution, especially the granite stone inscribed with his last farewell.

Rizal Park, Manila Reviews
A 4 square kilometer park where our national hero is buried. Lots of guards visible so there is a feeling of safety. Many people go just to relax. In the afternoon they turn on the fountains. It's a nice place to just sit around in the middle of the city.
A nice place to take your little ones for a tour. There is a big open ground to run around. Fresh air. The relaxing feeling. Love to come here to be relieved.
This park can really be a beautiful tourist destination if the Mayor, and the City Council, have the vision to make it so by putting in more funding to manicure it. Instead, they prioritize projects that will benefit their own pockets. Example? That eyesore of an only high rise condo in a low rise zoning area at the end of the park. It's a glaring monument to corruption.
It's a great place to spend with family and friends. You can tour your visitors here. It is rich with historical background. Usually crowded on a weekend. You can go to intramuros after where more historical establishments can be found. Book a tourist guide to help you navigate the place easily. There's a lot of multi language tour guide in the area.
Now they've managed to keep out the loiterers & homeless people, the place looks better. Grounds are regularly swept & cleaned. A nice place to spend the family day or get together with the schoolmates. Just be aware of your surroundings.
