I love to visit the Luneta Park during Chinese New Year. The park is in bloom during this time especially in Chinese Garden area.You'll see Chinese lanterns hanging giving a beautiful ambiance.
Rizal Park, also known as Luneta Park or simply Luneta, is a historic urban park located in Ermita, Manila, Philippines. It is considered as one of the largest urban parks in Asia, covering an area of 58 hectares (140 acres).Among its famous features is the Musical Dancing Fountain, deemed as the biggest and most vibrant dancing fountain in the country. The central lagoon present a show with waters soaring up to 88 feet., fireballs, exploding water rockets and peacock spray water screen. The Independence Flagpole and the Lapu Lapu circle are among its famous landmarks too.
Rizal Park is located in the center of Manilla next to Roxas Boulevard, facing Manilla bay. There is a large fountain in the middle of the park, and is a treasured place for rest for the people of Manilla.
The scale of the park is large, the scenery elegant, and is covered with shade-giving trees, with an aroma perceptible to all. At dusk the sparkling surface of the sea reflects the shadows of the swaying shoreline coconut palms, just like a painting brimming with picturesque charm. In the center of Rizal Park there are 3 large flower gardens, which are specifically dedicated to Chinese, Italian, and Japanese flowers and plants. There is a unique rock garden inside the park, along with beautiful a fountain and waterfall. Hardly a day goes by without an open-air concert which adds to the appeal of Rizal Park.
Rizal Park is located on the Roxas Boulevard in the city centre, facing Manila Bay. In the center of the park is a bronze statue of the hero Jose Rizal, who led the Philippine independence movement. Inside the artificial pool on the east side of the park is a model of the Philippine Islands that was originally built in the Philippines. Visitors can see the location of the various islands in the Philippines. There is an international garden dedicated to the cultivation of Chinese, Japanese and Italian flowers in the north. The daily audiovisual performances also attract the attention of many tourists. The environment in Rizal Park is beautiful, and the sea breeze is a good place for people to rest.
