Rizal Park in Davao City


The Rizal Park in Davao City is one of the many parks that have the statue of Dr. Jose Rizal, the Philippines National Hero, but the most notable of these are Rizal Shrine in Dapitan and Rizal Park in Manila. It is located in Bolton St. and the San Pedro St, the oldest street in Davao.

To the west about 15 meters away is the Sangguniang Panlungsod ng Dabaw and the San Pedro Cathedral. To the west is Quezon Park and Davao City Hall.

The Davao Rizal Park is the place where some government-financed bands held their concerts. It is also a gathering place for short meetings of government staffs and where the “way kurat” (fearless) former Mayor (now Vice-Mayor) Rodrigo Duterte speaks to the public about different city concerns.
