This place is full of memories. Bring your love one/s for a leisurely walk around the lake, better yet ride the boat and just row around the lake. Bring a picnic mat to sit on if you wish as there are many trees around to give you shade. Food is readily available with a lot of places to go to.... More

This is the very first place we visited after our rest. We just walk all the way from our hotel down to the park. The park was so amazing and the lake is so great. The temperature is quite cool and the air is so clean with the smell of Pine trees.

Recently, public smoking has been banned in Baguio and it's very evident in Burnham Park. Because of this, walking around is such a pleasant experience. The dancing fountains added some spice to the park. The people are friendly, food is available and there is police visibility. There are different kinds of bikes one can rent for Php50 for an hour.... More

Vendors flock around the lagoon which for me is not much of a sore to the sights. they are not the usual vendors who will give you a headache. For those who like to row, boats are ready for rent for different sizes. It's fun especially if you are with your friends or family!

The place is nice and clean. There are few souvenir vendors. Most of the visitors are grouped by families, and kids are enjoying their bike rides. The man-made lake isn't that clear anymore, and there's nothing else to see by boat so we opted to rent a bike instead. We were thrilled that they have a couple bike. It's like... More
