'Jose Rizal' the Philippine national hero is burried here with it's monument located at the center of these park.
These park has a childrens playground, japanese garden, chinese garden, planetarium, roller skating rink and the 'relief map of the Philippines in water'.
Rizal park or Luneta Park is also using for some Philippine events like big concerts, political and social gatherings of the country.
Favorite thing: You can catch a free concert inside Paco Park every Friday around 5 or 6 pm. Plastic chairs will be arranged around a pond in the center of the park for visitors to sit on while listening to the performance. While we were there we listened to opera music which was played by teenagers on a piano, violin and another instrument which i can't quite remember, accompanied by an older female who was in good voice. The concert is free but there is a small charge to enter the park (10 pesos i think)
Favorite thing: Here is a picture of the raised walkway at the Paco Chapel. My son felt like he was on a mini great wall of China!. It does make for a cool retreat from the blaring horns of the busy streets!
