  • The biggest park in Manila. You'll see local citizens come here enjoying relaxing moments like picnics or exercise especially on weekends. Many students come rehearsal on their school activities. A small Chinese garden located one corner in the huge park. Nice place to stay in weekends.
  • Manila’s Rizal park is a great place to start your day. People arrive to walk and run about dawn. I prefer more rural river walks but smoke does not irritate my breathing here. Early morning with a breeze off the ocean this is a perfect location.
