quirino grandstand
Quirino Grandstand is where the newly elected president of the Philippines takes his or her oath. Named after the former president Elpidio Quirino, it has also been venues for huge political, religious, cultural, and social events (examples are the grand Philippine Centennial celebration in 1998 and World Youth Day in 1995). This coming June 30, the inauguration and oath-taking of the newly elected President (Noynoy Aquino) and Vice-President (Jejomar Binay) will happen in this historic venue.


Directions on how to travel/commute to Quirino Grandstand:

There are no public means of transport passing through Quirino Grandstand. As we advise that you walk through Rizal Park/Luneta, we highly encourage you to take the opportunity to do some leisure walking. You might also want to try riding the kalesa from Rizal Park to Quirino Grandstand.
*Remember to take note that Quirino Grandstand's main landmark streets are either South Drive or Katigbak Drive and Roxas Boulevard. Nearest LRT 1 Station is United Nations (U.N.) Avenue Station. The grandstand faces Rizal Park towards Roxas Boulevard and behind it will be Manila Ocean Park and Manila Bay. Honestly, this is one of those destinations where you can actually say you need a taxicab but we will give you means to avoid riding a taxi below.

From the CaMaNaVa* (north of Manila) area:
*CaMaNaVa stands for Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela
Option 1. From Monumento, take an LRT 1 Yellow Line going to Taft and get down at United Nations station, walk towards T.M. Kalaw. You will notice that this is already Rizal Park. Walk towards Manila Bay until you reach Roxas Boulevard (you will walk past Orosa Street and National Library). Cross Roxas Blvd, and walk through South Drive and behind the Rizal Park stretch will be the visible Quirino Grandstand.

Option 2. From Monumento, ride a jeepney along Rizal Avenue bound for Taft Avenue and asked to be dropped at T.M. Kalaw. You will notice that this is already Rizal Park (Luneta). Walk towards Manila Bay until you reach Roxas Boulevard (you will walk past Orosa Street and National Library). Cross Roxas Blvd, and walk through South Drive and behind the Rizal Park stretch will be the visible Quirino Grandstand. It might happen that jeepneys bound for Taft are scarce so ride a jeepney first to Divisoria or Lawton and ask where you can transfer for those bound to Taft or Rizal Park (Luneta).
