Rizal Park - Review
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
Whether you're a foreigner or a local, you must visit Rizal Park. It is a part of every child's field trip and every couple's date, but above all these, Rizal Park portrays Filipino culture. Visiting Rizal Park is a fun activity to do as well with your loved ones. There are a lot of side attractions that can be found around. There are small stores that sell food so that while roaming around you don't go hungry. Expect a large volume of people when visiting during weekends and holidays.
Very good to have rest and enjoy the ambiance. Highly recommended for family who likes to relax and have a family bonding. Alot of things can do here, you can visit different museum around Rizal Park then you can wait for the fountain to be light up around evening. If you have kids who loves walking and running, this is also the best to visit. Plus its very affordable to visit for there is no fee. A must visit place.
I really know this place as I have studied in 2 schools near this park for 4 years each. Not enough guards patrol the park to shoo off undesirables. Lots of trash scattered around the facility. Not enough trash cans. Not enough cleaning staff to collect trash cans. The facility itself is not so well maintained. The statue itself is fine. Dont get me talking on the back drop of the statue. Shows how the government respects culture and history of its own country. It is underwhelming at best and disappointing at worst.
Good place to have a picnic with family and friends. The park is quite massive but it needs maintenance,though it's not dirty, just improvements around the park. The monument of Rizal is something to see in person. I never thought I would be able to see the great monument of our National Hero. One thing's for sure, that hideous building at the back (Torre de Manila) needs to be demolished. It destroys the preserved picture perfect scene.
If you are staying in Malate and have some spare time, this park is worth a visit. It has some mini themed parks (egg Chinese gardens) running off the main park. Read up on Rizal before you go. Has a good evening musical fountain display also worth seeing.
