It is a fairly big park with adequate place for different activities. The rental activities of bicycle, roller skating and boating looks worn and well used and in my opinion need a replacement. Besides that, it is a good place for relaxation since Baguio has a cool climate. There is adequate security personnel to give the assurance of security when... More

One of the best attraction of this joint is the Boat Ride. It's one of the most romantic scene in the place...what's more romantic of riding a boat....well with a few dozen more doing the same :-)

The park was recently renovated. There are a lot of activities around for the family - bike area, food tripping, rose garden, mini carnival (though not sure if this was only during the holidays), boat ride, picnic.

I'd come here about five years ago and had a blast rowing boats in the lake. I have no idea what happened between now and then, but things have changed remarkably since then. I'm used to roughing it out, but even I almost lost my lunch when I saw the water. Never before had I seen such brown water. It... More

This seems to be part of every Baguio trip. The park is relatively clean with pay restrooms scattered all over the place. There are plenty of activities available especially for kids. There are also lots of restaurants and food options nearby.

In the heart of Baguio is this lovely park which is quite big which allows tourists to stroll and relax if they wish to. Quite a few activities for the whole family including a manmade lake where you can rent a rowboat or paddle boat for a reasonable price.

The most popular place in Baguio City. It was the night of Jan. 2, 2015 when we get there and the temperature was 13 degrees C. A bit cold for us but we enjoyed it. There were lots of colorful lights because of the Christmas season. There are boats to ride and bicycles to rent. It's nice to walk around... More
