Image for The ever famous Rizal Park

Luneta or Rizal Park is one of the famous parks in the Philippines which is situated in the heart of Metro Manila and named after our national hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal. It is famous for Filipino families to spend time with each other every weekend. There are food chains around the area but mostly visitors bring their own food and drinks for budget purposes. I attended several activities held in Quirino Grandstand just in front of Luneta Park and dined several times among the seafood restaurants in the vicinity. The park is along Roxas Boulevard near Manila Bay where you can watch the beautiful sunset. It also serves as a large playground and housed several swings, slides, wheels, and others that surely kids will enjoy. This park is close to some important destinations in Manila like the US Embassy (walking distance), Manila Bay, Manila Zoo, Quirino Grand Stand, Star City and Intramuros not to mention several hotels near the park.
