Rizal Park is in the midst of Manila's hustle and bustle of a concrete jungle stands Rizal Park. A tribute to the country's national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, it marks the spot where Rizal, accused by the Spanish authorities of leading the insurrection, was executed by a firing squad. Luneta (as it is commonly called) is a refuge for early morning jogger and tai-chi practitioners. At night, the park is transformed into a romantic rendezvous for lovers.
.
Apart from its grassy expanse, Luneta also features a planetarium, dozens of fountains, an amphitheatre, a children's playground, a skating rink and the Chinese and Japanese gardens.
