Ang Paco Park at Sementeryo ay isang maganda at tahimik na

lugar sa suburb ng Paco sa Maynila. Ito ay dinisenyo sa isang


pabilog form - sa istruktura ng dalawang concentric batong pader
na may promenade sa tuktok - may isang rotunda simbahan (St
Pancratius) at luma na hardin sa gitna. Itinayo noong 1820, ang
mga niches sa pader ng Paco Cemetery natanggap ang mga
katawan ng mga biktima ng kolera epidemya ng taong iyon. Isang
dating Gobernador Espanyol General ng Pilipinas, Ramon Solano y
Lladeral, at isang bilang ng mga obispo buried sa libingan. Tatlong
pari, ama Jos A. Burgos, Mariano C. Gomez at Jacinto R. Zamora,
na isinasagawa sa 1872 para sa kanilang mga pinaghihinalaang
papel sa Cavite na pag-aalsa (isang ika-19 na siglo insureksyon
laban sa Espanyol panuntunan), ay buried sa Park. Ang mga pari
(kadalasang tinutukoy sama-sama bilang Gomburza) ay isang
inspirasyon para sa mga mamaya mga Pilipino na mga
tagapagtaguyod ng kalayaan tulad ng Jos Rizal at ay itinuturing
na martir ng Philippine bansa.

A serious cholera outbreak in 1820 led to the need for a municipal


cemetery in Paco then known as San Fernando de Dilao. Paco Park
is a 4,114.80 square meter recreational garden area and was
once Manilas municipal cemetery during the Spanish colonial
period. It is located along General Luna St. and at the east end of
Padre Faura Street in Paco district in the City of Manila, the
Philippines.

Paco Park was where the remains of Philippine National Hero, Jose
P. Rizal, was interred after his execution on December 30, 1896.
His body rested here from 1896 to 1912. His remains were then
moved to its current location at Rizal Park.

The Paco Park is a recreational garden and was once Manilas
municipal cemetery built by the Dominicans during the Spanish
colonial period. It is located on General Luna Street and at the
east end of Padre Faura Street in Paco, Manila, Philippines.

Paco Park has also become a very popular venue for weddings
and receptions for couples who prefer garden-like settings. The
Chapel of St. Pancratius is under the care of the San Vicente de
Paul Parish and the Vincentian fathers who also manage the
nearby Adamson University.

Spanish period

According to an on-site inscription, an order for the construction


of a cemetery in Bagumbayan was issued in 1807, due to the
outbreak of a cholera epidemic in Manila. Maestro de Obras Don
Nicolas Ruiz developed a plan for the Paco Cemetery, while Don
Jose Coll served as supervisor of the construction work. The
cemetery was primarily designed as a municipal cemetery for the
affluent and established aristocratic Spanish families who resided
in the old Manila, or the city within the walls of Intramuros during
the Spanish colonial era. It was on April 22, 1822 when the
cemetery was officially inaugurated, although it had been in use
for two years prior to its completion.

In 1859, Governor Fernndo Norzagaray y Escudero proposed the


extension of the cemetery to approximately 4,500 square yards,
enclosing the original plan with another circular outer wall. For the
amount of Php 19,700, a Chinese builder won the bid to build the
outer portion of the cemetery. At that time, the niches cost Php 20
for three years, which was subject to renewals as no one was
granted privilege to own the niches in perpetuity.
On December 30, 1896, Philippine national hero Dr. Jos P. Rizal
was interred at Paco Park after his execution at Bagumbayan.

Interment at the Paco Cemetery ceased in 1912. It had been the


burial ground for several generations and descendants of those
buried in the park had the remains of their ancestors exhumed
and transferred to other cemeteries in Manila.

Paco Cemetery to Paco Park

Isa ako sa mga tao na hindi pamilyar sa lugar na ito. Ang tanging
alam ko lamang ay dito unang inilibing si Dr. Jose Rizal dahil iyon
ang sabi ng aking propesor sa Rizal, hanggang sa dumating ang
pagkakataon na binigyan nya kami ng isang proyekto kung saan
kailangan naming gumawa ng dokyu tungkol sa buhay ng
nasabing bayani. Bagamat, bago sa aming pandinig, hindi naming
alam kung saan matatagpuan ang lugar na ito- Ang Paco
Cemetery na ngayon ay mas kilala na sa tawag na Paco park.

Ayon sa Wikipedia,

Paco Park was originally planned as a municipal cemetery for the


well-off and established aristocratic Spanish families who resided
in the old Manila, or the city within the walls of Intramuros during
the Spanish colonial era. Most of the wealthy families interred the
remains of their loved ones inside the municipal cemetery in what
was once the district of Dilao (former name for Paco). The
cemetery was built in the late 18th century but was completed
several decades later and in 1822, the cemetery was used to inter
victims of a cholera epidemic that swept across the city.
Ito ang simbahan sa Paco Cemetery kung saan hindi na
nagagamit para pagdausan ng misa.

Rebulto ng ating pambansang Bayani kung saan nakalagay ang


kanya labi noon.

Dito unang inilibing ang ating Pambansang bayani matapos


siyang barilin sa Bagumbayan noong Disyembre 30, 1898 sa
kadahilanang itinago sya ng mga kastila sa kanyang mga pamilya
at hindi rin sya binigyan ng pormal na seremonya ng sya ay
mamatay. At dahil sa dami ng tao na pumupunta araw-araw sa
puntod ng yumaong bayani naging maliit ng husto ang Paco
Cemetery para mabigyan ang mga tao na Makita ang puntod nito
kayat noong taong 1966 sa pamumuno ng dating Pang.
Ferdinand Marcos, tinawag na itong Paco Park kung saan ito ay
nagsilbi na lamang na pasyalan ng pamilya, mag-kakaibigan ang
mga magkasintahan. Ang entrance fee sa Paco Park ay Php 5.00.

Ito ang aking mga ka-grupo sa ginawa naming dokyu tungkol sa


Paco Cemetery na ngayon ay Paco Park na.

Ang Paco Park ay nasa pamamalakad noon ng National Parks


Development Committee (NPDC) noong katungkulan ni dating
Pang. Marcos at dito nagdaraos noon ng mga "cultural
presentations" para sa mga dayuhan tulad ng mga taga
Alemanya (Germany) sa pamamalakad at paglulunsad ng dating
unang Ginang Imelda Marcos. At naging parte na ng selebrasyon
sa Germany ang Philippine-German Month, kung saan
nagkakaroon ng tradisyonal na pagtitipon tuwing Biyernes ng
hapon at tinawag itong Paco Park Presents."
Malaki ang kontribusyon ng mga historikal na lugar na ito para
mas mapagyaman ang mga nananatiling yaman ng bansa na
naging parte ng ating kasaysayan at pamumuhay.
