Cute and quaint

Cute and quaint little park to stop by if you're in the area. There's a small church that runs mass in the center. Beautiful stone wall that encircles the park.

I went to Paco Park last year (2016) while our driver/friend was taking us on a church tour. I learnt that this was where Dr Rizal was first buried after his execution in 1896. Also the three priests, Burgos, Gomez and Zamora were also buried first here after their execution.

Before they made a park of, it was a cemetery, it is a walled park. It was once Manila's municipal cemetery during the Spanish colonial period. It has become a very popular place for weddings and receptions

I like Paco Park a lot because of its historical significance as well as they way it has been maintained. It's so peaceful and refreshing to be in this park located in a concrete jungle. There's also a lot to learn about the country's history by strolling around.

Walked to the Paco Park to beat the Manila Wednesday afternoon traffic. Entrance fee is P10. They close at 5 so I pretty had the place all to myself as it was already 430PM. I enjoyed taking photos of the chapel, the fountain, the park. It is quite well maintained and gave me a nostalgic feeling - it is walled,... More

The place is well maintained and very quiet. Visitors will have a great time hanging around and taking pictures. It is a must to visit this place aside from intramuros when touring Manila. Worth your time 👍

Beautiful park with lots of greenery and statues. We took the horse driven cart ride and loved it. Take a lunch for extra fun.
