KIDS CAN NOW STROLL IN LUNETA BUT PICNIC STILL NOT ALLOWED
For families looking for alternative places to bring their children out for a stroll recommended Luneta and Paco Park both in Manila.
Jezreel Apelar, deputy executive director of the National Parks and Development Committee said, “At the moment, were allowing only 50 to 65. Pero yung mga bata na kasama ang mga magulang pinapasok na rin po namin.”
Apelar explained that the limited number of parks visitors is for the safety of everyone.
“It’s a safe environment para sa mga pamilya. Meron na rin po kaming Christmas lights din na ma-enjoy ng mga bata.”
Filling out a health declaration form and temperature checks is still a must for visitors.
Apelar said, “Sa loob din ng park kailangan din sundan yung physical distancing. Meron kaming roving guards na nagche-check sa aming visitors. Face masks are required.”
One important reminder, visiting families are not allowed to hold picnics or even bring in food and drinks.
He added, “‘Di po allowed mga picnics. Sa ngayon, you can walk around the promenade pero yung picnic ‘di pa po ina-allow namin.”
The very readon why food stalls inside the park are still closed too.
“Wala rin pong food vendors sa ngayon. Bawal pa rin magdala ng drinks at food sa ngayon.”
Rizal Park and Paco Park in Manila is being managed by the National Parks Development Committee.
Rizal Park opens daily from 5 a.m to 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
