A let down if you have visited parks abroad because of the gardens that need more maintaining and lack of clean restrooms, the park is a must see for visitors who want to see the Rizal statue, the zero kilometer marker and just observe the filipino family in its natural, fun-loving, outdoorsy personality.

I am a foreigner in the Philippines but I love this place. Some complain about the homeless and the begging kids and the sad shape of the lawns, but that is not the way to look at Rizal Park. This place is in honour of the National Hero. His execution spot is just off to the side behind the Chinese... More

This was a large and beautiful park with so much going on there. It reminded me in some ways of the National Mall in Washington, DC.

From what I saw on the internet it appeared to be a beautiful park. The reality is the park was full of homeless people. The Japanese gardens which was a small fee to get into was not what you might expect. The grass was in sad shape and people sleeping and little kids begging for money.

This is a big park where you can walk around. On weekends there are sometimes special events. Nice is the plastic sculpture of the Philippines. Inside the park there is a great Chinese garden and a Japanese garden you can access for a small fee. Only the Chinese garden is worth to visit. I know great Japanese gardens in other... More

A historic place for the Philippines! A good fountain, park and air. You can have a great time from 5 pm to 8 pm! Throughout the day it is super hot!

Everybody needs a break while touring, especially when it is hot and humid. This park is perfect for that. It has lovely flowers, shade with seating and a quiet ambience. This park was built in honour of Dr. José Rizal, a national hero.

I spent about an hour here and I really enjoyed my time. It was quite historical and the monuments were huge. There was a Chinese garden you could visit for a cheap fee (10 pesos I think). You could also ride the train if it gets too hot out. It takes you around the whole park!
