No doubt historical but things seem not properly maintained. Don't know whether it is intentional so that you will a feeling of old-time. Entrance fee is php 10 piso. Good to drop by and spend 30-45 minutes there.

Could have been a wonderful park but sadly lacks maintenance and upkeep. This place does have a lot of potential if managed properly.

It's a small park, quaint and cosy. An hour or two would be enough to visit and see every nook and cranny. It's very well maintained. They charge a negligible entrance fee which i feel is a small price to pay to visit a lovely...More

Shows and presentations at the Paco Park are not as structured as they used to be, so you will have to check with their Admin Office for show schedules. Sorry I could not say more.
