Burnham Park
About

Burnham Park is a must visit when in Baguio and we love strolling around the park. You must visit Baguio during this hot season. Just need to improve amenities as a suggestion.

Easy to go to. Ride the Genesis 1st class bus, sleep on the road and when you wake up, "Hello Baguio!"

There’s a lot of activities to do in Burnham Park. We chose to do the biking one and it was cheap for almost an hour. After visiting many times, it was my first time doing this activity.

Burnham Park is also improving the same as the other tourist attractions in Baguio. Now, they had a lot of food stalls nearby while biking in the area. They also keep the surroundings clean every time.

A clean park where you can sit and relax. There are lots of snacks nearby and activities too. You can get a massage, henna tattoo, go on a boat ride etc.

One of the most overcrowded place to go in baguio whether you will go morning or night, there is no place for you to park because of many people go here. But you must not miss the night market just in front of Burnham Park

Burnham Park is in the centre of Baguio and is named after the USA architect David Burnham. The lagoon that has rides in boats that look like swans are very popular. There are signs up forbidding massage, but women and men take no notice and offer you massages. There is also a children's park. It is free to enter.

Quite a bit to see and do for the whole family. When we visited it was super crowded, but that made it much more interesting and fun when we rented bikes and tricycles. The bike paths were super chaotic with kids counter-flowing and people crashing which was also actually pretty fun 😂. Nice park for a date, picnic, or just a place to chill.

Nice big park at the center of town. It has a small lake where you can rent a boat to paddle around. Rent a bicycle or find a shaded area just to sit and people watch. Take the kids to the children park so they can play on all the slides and swings. Make sure to check out the Orchardium if you're a plant lover.

I arrived at Baguio City 3:30 in the morning. Since it was still too early for the hostel check-in I visited burnham park and roam around the park to relax. The place is too quiet and I enjoyed it. I went back in the afternoon to fulky enjoy the place.
