  • The park is really nice and it can be an escape from the hustle and buzz of the city, while remembering the national hero.

  • This is a very memorial palace for the history of the Philippines. A very must visit place for every Filipino. Since it is my first time visiting here I am already amazed with the view. Very historic place and it didn't fail to emphasize the history of the Philippines which is the essence of having a historical park. In weekdays we can really enjoy the place since there are only few people walking around, but on weekends I think there will be more people. I love the availability of alcohols in every corner which are important to maintain health protocols. The place is well guarded and it is nice to see post guard standing besides the monument. The park is clean and well maintained, you can also grab some foods in the stores located outside the park. You have a flexible budget you can hire authorized photographer in the area, they are very friendly and capture nice photo of you. Please be reminded that you should keep off the grass and careful not to damage any sculptures. I hope you will visit the place and support our local historic sites, vendors and business enterprise. If you are concerned if there is any restroom, I don't know but I think there is, you can just ask the guard or other tourists.
  • Wow! Highly recommended to visit due to the vastness of the park. Many historical icons and relics were found within the area. Very historical. A good place to unwind and enjoy the view. For those who are planning to have a picnic here, highly recommended but stay with caution due to unexpected uncertainties. (secure your personal belongings all the time and I do advise to stay with a companion if planning for a picnic) Excellent view. Park is well maintained. Little to no trash in the area (please, to everyone, don't litter! respect!) Overall, highly recommended. Excellent park!
