Rustic Paco Park

Stepping inside Paco Park is similar to falling into a rabbit hole like what happened to Alice in Wonderland. I can’t believe it’s only a couple of blocks away from the UN Ave. LRT station along Taft Avenue which is always filled with vehicles and people.

The park grounds are filled with different species of flowers and trees. Here, the sound of the city is muffled by its stone walls which would make it a great place for romantic talks or meditation. It was an old cemetery which was converted into a park and has a chapel that can be used for weddings - which is also the main reason why me and my friends were there Saturday afternoon.


Me and Glee arrived 45 minutes before the wedding started which gave us plenty of time to explore. It’s one of those places that make you go “oh” and “ah” while walking. Paco Park is just peacefully beautiful, if that makes any sense.


Again, thanks to Gaye, the bride and our friend for introducing us to another wonderful destination. What’s great about it is that it’s just within Manila.


Congrats Gaye and Sherv!


*Paco Park can also serve as a wedding reception.
