At Paco Park Manila

Follow nenskeis on

It was just a typical day. Little did I know that I would be able to visit one the favorite parks in Manila. The Paco Park in Manila, a place I had only seen on TV or in movies.

I meant to stay in Malate for three weeks to take some not so personal errands. I arrived in Manila in the morning and went directly to my supposed appointment but got canceled in that afternoon.

I was just around Agoncilio – Pedro Gil St. I knew that Paco Park was nearby, so I searched for it on Google Maps, and voilà – magic happens in technology. It was just a 7-10 minute walk from where I was, so I went for it.

There is so much history for this place. It was used as a municipal cemetery during the Spanish period, then as a central supply and ammunition depot by the Japanese during WWII, and finally converted to a National Park after the war.

The park is not free though, you need to pay 10.00 Php to get a full view of it – it’s worth it and helps to maintain the Park as well.
