Start of February was quite a long running flower festival with stalls and set gardens displays. Well worth walking round and open into the evening which made the park a less threatening destination

In the morning you can see lots of people walking, jogging and some are dancing. And there are times that fog will surround the park. Feels like you are in another country like Sweden or Finland maybe. They kept the park clean, there are restrooms and parking area. Nice place to have a chat or read a book.

Me an' the wife enjoyed this park even though it was rather plain like any other park. I did like the market which was situated inside, which sold a variety of things includin' many gifts. Worth a visit here an' would defiantly go again.

Nothing extraordinary. They still have Christmas decorations w lights open at night. I think it needs renovation to restore its beauty.

We chose Burnham Park to meet with a friend who is a student in Baguio. They have clean restrooms (bring pesos), a roller rink, boat rides in a lake, an area where kids can ride bikes with getting nailed by traffic, pretty much a family atmosphere.

The place looks different now when i was here 10 years ago and it's much better as it is tourist friendly. A good time to take a rest or to unwind while waiting for somebody.

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
