  • So much fun here.. There's a lot to do here, like picnic, watching the beautiful dancing fountain at night, you can go to national museum of natural history and national museum of antropology... You can also jog here every morning or afternoon. Nothing to worry because there's a guard on round.
  • If you value patriotism, visit this place. To be honest, the area is very well maintained. From the grass, shrubs and other plants are well trimmed. The area is very clean. The statue itself is not accessible to be touched or what. I understand it since some people may forget that this is a national park and needs to be catered securely. There are security personnel in the area.
  • The park is nice. Good for walking since the lot is really huge. Also there are museum around that you can get in and learn something.
  • This is a wonderful place to come. Even when crowded, there is still open space to be explored. Like the national mall in Washington D.C. or Grant Park in Chicago, Luneta Park stretches for quite a distance. Every time I am there, there are new things to see and new places to explore. There are water light shows, Chinese gardens, open places to play Frisbee or fly kites, and lots of photo ops. This is a safe place for tourists. It is a must see if you come visit the Philippines.
  • Rizal Park is one of the best place in the Philippines to visit with.. Just explore it and you will see how lovely the place is. Very relaxing and stress reliever.
