This place is really close to the city proper, and just minutes away from the market. This place kind of downgraded from the last time I went to Baguio. It used to be a place where you can feel the cool breeze, but now, since the place is packed with so many people, it lost a little charm. You can... More

Burnham Park is the only flat part of the Central Business District. Sadly, not all of it has been developed or maintained very beautifully. I like walks by the Rose garden, also jogging around the lake. I usually stay away from the bike area and the picnic areas.

Kids had a great time on the boats and riding the bikes. Would recommend watching kids closely while on the bikes, there were enough out of control kids biking and adults who acted like kids that can be dangerous to little ones, otherwise enjoy.

Ahhhhh those sunflowers are killing me whenever I see them. I always wanted to pick one but of course picking is not allowed. This place never changed (at least for me)
