With its cold climate, it is no wonder Baguio City is a popular destination spot for foreign and local tourists alike. Not only that, the city is home to many scenic wonders sure to fire up any vacation. One of these attractions is Burnham Park.

 

Named after American architect Daniel Hudson Burnham, the park houses many amenities designed to induce relaxation to even the most stressed person. Burnham Park is the oldest and quite possibly the most beautiful park in Baguio city.

The proclaimed “Summer Capital of the Philippines” is built around this Park, quite literally making it the Heart of Baguio.

Quite a popular site especially during the holidays, Burnham Park offers a wide variety of recreational activities. Within its grounds stands a skating rink, playground for children – or adults if you feel like it, Orchidarium, Rose Garden, a full pledge man made park, basketball court, tennis court and the all important food.

Because of this, tourists and residents alike are given a wide variety of things to do. You could go cycling with friends as different kinds of bike for kids and adults alike are available for rent. Perfect activity to be done with friends.

Now, if you don’t feel like going around in wheels and sweating, a simple leisurely walk would also do, allowing you further examination of the beautiful sceneries. Add a camera to that invigorating and you would have excellent backdrop pictures.

But perhaps the biggest attraction is the eye catching manmade lake wherein you could rent a boat and happily cruise the peaceful waters of the lake. Perfect for sweethearts, the lake positively exudes romanticism.

The park is also a great place for family outings. All of its amenities cater to every member of the family including that four wheeled bike for junior.
