The 'mother of all parks' in Baguio city, the summer capital of the Philippines, is a 32.84-hectare park designed by, and named after, American architect and urban planner Daniel Hudson Burnham, who also designed the original plan for Baguio City as well as Dewey Boulevard (now Roxas Boulevard) in Manila. The park has 12 main areas, the most popular of which are the Burnham Lagoon, a man-made lake with rowboats for hire; a children's playground; a skating rink; the Rose Garden and the Picnic Grove.

It is still nice, with a lot of things to do. But t is very crowded. Very traffic. It is good in some way because it is generating income for the locals. There is a lot of nice view. I love the flowers being arranged in an alley for the preparation of Panagbenga. A lot of food choices. There are... More

The place is a little bit crowded but fun. Great for family and couple bonding. There are plenty shops to buy some souvenirs and some snacks.

I love strolling in this park since there are lots of stalls around the area where you can buy goodies. Lots of RTW clothes at a cheap rice. You may also find Baguio Tshirts. There are also Strawberry Taho and other food stalls in this place. The corn stall and the Korean stall is a must try! You can also... More

We enjoyed the activities and the place itself for this is where people mostly from Metro Manila takes a break. The... More
