Who would want to miss having a picture with the Philippines' national hero, Jose Rizal, in the background? When I was young, I was told that this place is the meeting place of most lovers including my parents when they were still living in Manila. There are benches around the area so you can just stay there all you want. Just few hundreds of meters away is another attraction called National Museum. Trivia. The Rizal Park is to where you can find the kilometer 0 of the Philippines, and it's the flagpole on the last photo.
Rizal Park is located in the center of Manilla next to Roxas Boulevard, facing Manilla bay. There is a large fountain in the middle of the park, and is a treasured place for rest for the people of Manilla.
The scale of the park is large, the scenery elegant, and is covered with shade-giving trees, with an aroma perceptible to all. At dusk the sparkling surface of the sea reflects the shadows of the swaying shoreline coconut palms, just like a painting brimming with picturesque charm. In the center of Rizal Park there are 3 large flower gardens, which are specifically dedicated to Chinese, Italian, and Japanese flowers and plants. There is a unique rock garden inside the park, along with beautiful a fountain and waterfall. Hardly a day goes by without an open-air concert which adds to the appeal of Rizal Park.
#triplocal We we're at Manila Rizal Park. The place there was so nice and it was very nice in our eyes. It has a big area for you to roam around. You can also buy some foods there if you are hungry.
Rizal Park has lots of interesting stuff to see, without any one attraction being mind-boggling or spectacular. There are museums, gardens, orchidarium and countless statues and monuments. For me, the big selling point was trees, grass and a bit of nature. It’s a good place to wind down in and step back from the urban chaos, while also being a nice add-on to a trip to nearby Intramuros or Manila Ocean Park, Fort Santiago and Manila Cathedral.
As an attraction in its own right, well, Rizal Park is in a pretty handy location if you happen to be staying in Ermita or Malate.
Rizal Park is located on the Roxas Boulevard in the city centre, facing Manila Bay. In the center of the park is a bronze statue of the hero Jose Rizal, who led the Philippine independence movement. Inside the artificial pool on the east side of the park is a model of the Philippine Islands that was originally built in the Philippines. Visitors can see the location of the various islands in the Philippines. There is an international garden dedicated to the cultivation of Chinese, Japanese and Italian flowers in the north. The daily audiovisual performances also attract the attention of many tourists. The environment in Rizal Park is beautiful, and the sea breeze is a good place for people to rest.
