The Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque was established in 1964 when the city was still a municipality of Rizal province. In August 1985, it became the first cemetery to host a modern crematorium in a memorial park setting, having been established a year after Pope Paul VI lifted the ban on cremation for Catholics. The cemetery became part of a larger network of burial sites of Manila Memorial Park, Inc. with five other cemeteries under the Manila Memorial Park brand opened in other parts of the Philippines.
The Manila Memorial Park was plot setting in the drama film Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow in 2011.
