Must visit when choosing a wedding church. The walled former cemetery park is romantic, shaded by old tall accacia tress. The inner walls are niches of infants who died from a plague. Jose Rizal was once burried here before being moved to Luneta

No doubt historical but things seem not properly maintained. Don't know whether it is intentional so that you will a feeling of old-time. Entrance fee is php 10 piso. Good to drop by and spend 30-45 minutes there.

When I was studying at a nearby school, the Park's open spaces often served as our practice grounds. The shady trees offer a welcome haven from the hot tropical sun. The place is also good for photo ops, Robinson's Place Manila is 10-15 minute walk...More

Shows and presentations at the Paco Park are not as structured as they used to be, so you will have to check with their Admin Office for show schedules. Sorry I could not say more.

Yes it's safe. You might feel uncomfortable at night but it's still safe. There are some people that camp there at night they are nothing to be afraid of.
