This iconic urban park is also known a Rizal Park, which marks this as an important historical place where Jose´ Rizal was executed during the Spanish colonial rule. The Rizal monument is a major attraction which includes a statue and a pathway lined with flags. There are eight large bronze statues that depict his final moments and execution along with statues of a firing squad as well. The park is usually crowded with locals and tourists mostly during weekends. Artworks of renowned Filipino artists are displayed within the park and in the Artists Haven, which are a must see. Families will find a playground for kids, a skating rink and stroll can be enjoyed in the Chinese Garden surrounded by a lagoon - or you can even visit The Ochidarium Manila and Japanese garden as well if you enjoy nature. The Manila Ocean Park oceanarium should also be visited to observe different kinds of marine life and see the Aquatica Musical Fountain.
