How To Get To Rizal Park or Luneta?

12:35 PM by Metro Manila Directions · 20 comments






When we have visitors from the province or abroad, our automatic tourist destination would always be Rizal Park. A historical place dedicated to our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, the park overlooks the once-magnificent Manila Bay. Rizal Park's old names were Bagumbayan (history books would point this as Jose Rizal's execution area) and Luneta. Alluding to the Kilometer Zero marker found in this park, one can say that the Rizal Park is the basic starter for one to get to know what the Philippines is all about. The park starts at Agrifina Circle and terminates at the Quirino Grandstand.

Rizal Park is home to the following attractions:
1. Rizal Monument - the bronze and granite Rizal Monument stands as the most famous landmark in the country. Diplomats and important foreign visitors have the protocol to lay a wreath at this intensely guarded monument.
2. Agrifina Circle
3. National Museum of the Filipino People
4. Rizal Park proper - families would often picnic at the park on Sundays and holidays. Martial artists also have their practice in this area.
5. Relief Map of the Philippines - a small lake showing the replica of the Philippine islands.
6. Concert at the Park
7. Chinese and Japanese Gardens
8. Museum of Philippine History
9. National Library of the Philippines
10. Orchidarium and Butterfly Pavilion
11. Planetarium
12. Monument of Lapu-Lapu
13. Activity areas like the fountain, lagoon, chess plaza
14. Kilometer Zero (that flagpole in front of Rizal Monument)

Directions on how to travel/commute to Rizal Park/Luneta:

*Remember to take note that Rizal Park's main landmark boundary streets (clockwise) are Taft Avenue, T.M.Kalaw, Roxas Boulevard, and Padre Burgos. Nearest LRT 1 Station is United Nations (U.N.) Avenue Station. Luneta is bounded by the Relief Map of the Philippines and Quirino Grandstand on each of its ends.

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. This will be the start of Luneta/Rizal Park.

Option 2. From Monumento, ride a jeepney along Rizal Avenue bound for Taft Avenue and asked to be dropped at T.M. Kalaw.
From around Manila:
Option 1. Ride a jeepney along Rizal Avenue bound for Taft Avenue and asked to be dropped at T.M. Kalaw.
Option 2. Take an LRT 1 Yellow Line going to Taft and get down at United Nations station, walk towards T.M. Kalaw.
Option 3. From Lawton/City Hall area, ride a jeepney going to Baclaran and get down at the Shell Station at the corner of M.H.Del Pilar and T.M.Kalaw.

Option 4. Along Roxas Boulevard, there are FX that are Sucat-Lawton. You can ride this and asked to be dropped at Luneta.
From Quezon City and Marikina:
Option 1. Take the LRT2 Purple Line and go down at Recto Station. From here, transfer to Doroteo Jose Station of LRT 1 Yellow Line and ride an LRT bound for Baclaran. Go down at United Nations Avenue.
Option 2. From Cubao, you can ride a jeepney/FX that is bound for Quiapo and asked to be dropped at Rizal Avenue. Ride an LRT 1 bound for Baclaran via Doroteo Jose Station. Get down at United Nations Station.
Areas by the east side of Metro Manila (i.e. Pasig, Mandaluyong, Pateros etc):
Option 1. You can ride an MRT southbound to EDSA-Taft Station and transfer to the LRT1 via an elevated walkway to EDSA Station and ride an LRT bound for Monumento. Get down at United Nations Station and walk towards T.M. Kalaw.

Option 2. You can ride an MRT southbound to EDSA-Taft Station and from there ride a Quiapo/Divisoria bound jeepney via Taft Avenue. There are also buses from the south that are bound for Lawton, you can take that, get down at United Nations Station and walk towards T.M. Kalaw.

Option 3. You can also ride an MRT northbound to Cubao and transfer to LRT 2 Purple Line bound for Recto and ride an LRT 1 bound for Baclaran. Get down at United Nations Avenue. (This route is crazy and impractical, but it works).
From the south (Pasay, Makati, Paranaque and more southern area):
Option 1. Ride an FX or bus bound for Manila City Hall or Lawton and get down at Luneta.
Option 2. From SM Mall of Asia or along Taft Avenue, take a jeepney bound for Divisoria either via Taft or Mabini route. Get down at Luneta.
Option 3. Ride the LRT 1 Yellow Line bound for United Nations Station and get down at United Nations Station and walk towards T.M. Kalaw.

Option 4. Around Makati and Pasay, ride Libertad-LRT or Buendia-LRT bound jeepneys or Ayala-Leveriza bound buses and get down at the LRT station. Ride either an LRT or jeepney along Taft Avenue and get down at United Nations Station or Luneta/Rizal Park.

Option 5. Along Roxas Boulevard, there are FX that are Sucat-Lawton. You can ride this and asked to be dropped at Luneta.
For private vehicles, Rizal Park is accessible via Roxas Boulevard and Taft Avenue. It is actually advisable to come from Roxas Boulevard as there's ample parking and usually less car at this area. Taft Avenue usually have congested traffic.

Of course, you can ride a taxicab from any parts of Metro Manila and just mention to the driver to bring you to "Luneta", or"Rizal Park".


Here's a map Rizal Park via Google Maps:

Anybody that are coming to Manila could not miss going to Luneta Park. But, the last time I went to Manila, I really suffered from jet lag. I should have brought my jet lag prevention, jetLAGFX http://www.jetlagfx.com/.

This is a nice article. Maybe after visiting Manila Ocean Park (which is near there btw) I'm going to visit Rizal Park! I mean, who wouldn't want to see the Gallery of Heroes and the national hero himself, Jose Rizal? It's good to live here in the Philippines, theme parks are not the only park that is fun, even these national parks are awesome too.
