I asked some of the regular denizens of the park and they say that the public park was closed for 4 days now since Typhoon Glenda (really lang ha?). So I asked the guards and according to Park Securities, the park sustained damages because of the typhoon (Glenda), therefore they are just fixing and cleaning the whole park.
Ok... Frankly, this is the first time I saw the whole Rizal Park being closed to the public. Yep, the whole park. Now, it has been ravaged by storms and flood stronger compare to the recent "Glenda" yet they never closed it.
