Rizal ParkHave you been to Rizal Park, aka Luneta? This is the first park that I’ve been to when we arrived in Manila coming from the province. When I was a kid, this is the go-to place to visit. There were no malls, theme parks and entertainment centers back then. But as years passed by, this park lost its beauty. That’s not the case anymore.

I had the chance to pass by the park recently and was surprised how beautiful it is now. It’s like a new park altogether. Of course, the Rizal Monument is still there. Basically, everything that I saw that day was the same stuff — the gardens, monuments, stone garden benches, etc. But they looked new because the entire park is well-maintained.

In the evening, everyone gets to enjoy the colorful fountain that rivals the fountain show at the nearby Manila Ocean Park. I enjoyed every bit of it. It’s colorful, and danced with the music. There’s even a part where fire was blown into the air. Quite interesting. I look forward to visiting the new Rizal Park one of these days with family and friends.
