Burnham Park

Burnham Park is the most famous and the most visited park in Baguio City. Its main attraction is a man-made lake where tourists can rent a boat and just cruise in the lake. The park also has lots of benches where a couple could just laze and cuddle in the cool weather. Or they could just lie down and rest in its bermuda-grassed grounds.

Burnham park also is probably the busiest park in the City where lots of activities took place - from cultural presentations to market encounters. The park is especially beautiful during Flower Festival where almost every corner of the place is in bloom.

Here are some pics I have taken from the park:


Blooming and Colorful flowers surround the man-made lake.

Boats of different shapes and sizes are available for rent.



One of the beautifully curved narkers in the park.



The concrete path of the park allows for a scenic and relaxing walk.


The man-made lake is the center of this park located at the heart of the City.
