Rizal Park is one of the most significant landmarks in the Philippines.  Also known as Luneta Park and originally referred to as Bagumbayan during the Spanish era, Rizal Park is where the country’s national hero Jose Rizal got executed in 1896.  It is where his remains are enshrined and is recognized as the Philippines’ main kilometer zero.  

Covering an area of 58 hectares, the historic area is considered one of the largest urban parks in Asia housing the National Museum Complex, an open-air auditorium, Independence flagpole, a musical dancing fountain, the Quirino Grandstand, and a 10-hectare open field, in addition to the Rizal Monument.  Gardens, artworks, a flower clock, and other monuments can also be found in the park.
