Rizal Park

Rizal Park in Luzon

The national park that lies right in the heart of Manila has become the site of many events that shaped the country's history.
Rizal Park which is at the peripheral of the Wall City, is originally known as Bagumbayan and, later, Luneta. This is where National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal was executed by musketry during the Spanish regime. The park has many points of interest including a Japanese garden, Chinese garden, artist's sanctuary, a children's playground, stone statues of dinosaurs and monsters. To commemorate history of the park, a light show telling the graphic story of Rizal's execution is staged every evening at 7:30 PM.
