Our hotel was very close to the Rizal Park so we walked here . Chinese gardens were interesting. Japanese gardens were free because of the women's day , so we had a quick look in there too . It's nice to stroll around the park . Take few photos and move on ... locals were having snooze on the grass... More

I wouldn't bother going out of my way to see this place. It's huge but it's just another park. I would rather spend time in intramuros nearby.

This is a nice place, also known as Rizal Park, it is next to Intramurals area and near the US Embassy. There is a good security presence so the homeless aren't living in there too much and the scammers are at a minimum. Its quiet, peaceful and look for a place to sit in the shade. Great time killer.

Went to this site as a first timer with family for our "Back to our Roots" trip. After visiting the National Mall in Washington, D.C. just a year back, I considered this place the Philippine equivalent and a must see place. First, we landed on the West end and viewed the Jose Rizal portion(btw, paid entry) of the park. Beautiful... More

historical location but with a photo bomber on the background because of the unfinished building at the back you cannot get a good angle of the great hero jose rizal. situated along taft avenue, it is very accessible for public and private transportations. good place to visit in the morning and at night. beware of snatchers and pickpockets..

Good place to relax and unwind and have a picnic with friends and family. If you are a Pokemon GO player, you may be able to catch a lot of those within the area as well.

A large park close to Intramuros where the locals go to picnic and enjoy the open space - referred to a the lung of the city. Interesting monuments to both their heroes of the Philippines and to commemorate the victims of war. To the North of the park is a model of the Philippines depicting the islands that make up...

The park is a quiet setting to honor a beloved Filipino hero. I recommend reading a little history about Rizal or you won't understand why so many places have Rizal as part of their name. He was a very talented and passionate man who was executed for his beliefs.
