Rizal Park has always played a role in the country’s history, development and consciousness and has been an integral part of the urban fabric and Philippine society. It has enjoyed periods of significance as well as decline as it mirrored the changing circumstances of events occurring in its existence and surrounding context and communities.


The focus of the Master Plan is on preserving the historic and cultural value of the Park, its natural context and economic sustainability with a strong emphasis on connecting the people to this and to each other from yesterday, today to tomorrow.
