Luneta Park Scandal | Rizal Park Park Scandal
Did you know of the luneta scandal? Luneta is a beautiful park in which Filipinos like to hang out. It is not as crowded as it was before the advent of SM malls. However there are still significant people who still hang out and even sleep overnight at the Luneta park. The last time I visited this place sleeping in the park overnight was no longer allowed but back, If i'm not mistaken, in 2003 sleeping overnight in the Luneta park was allowed. During the time there were so many Filipinos specially the homeless, travellers from the provinces and people applying for overseas job slept overnight at the Luneta park. The park management was generous then to the immediate needs of these people. However people prior to that, in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s Luneta was a place where lovers held their regular dates. Even today, this place remains a choice of couple who want to hang out and date. Due to these and the very public nature of this place, scandalous things happened in this area. There were rumors and even actual tabloid reports about couple doing naughty things during the night in a dark area of the park. There was also a tabloid report that wrote about a couple caught by the guards of the park and were even abused by the guards by forcing the couple to repeat what they have in the park's office. The guards were reported to the police for the said abuse. This also became a huge issue in the tabloids. There are a lot of scandal stories/rumors that talk about naughty things that happened in the Luneta park. However today this thing rarely happens because the management are very strict on maintaining security, beauty and also decency in this park.
