The 'mother of all parks' in Baguio city, the summer capital of the Philippines, is a 32.84-hectare park designed by, and named after, American architect and urban planner Daniel Hudson Burnham, who also designed the original plan for Baguio City as well as Dewey Boulevard (now Roxas Boulevard) in Manila. The park has 12 main areas, the most popular of which are the Burnham Lagoon, a man-made lake with rowboats for hire; a children's playground; a skating rink; the Rose Garden and the Picnic Grove.

Situated near SM Baguio. One of the most interesting places to visit in the city. Went here during the christmas season and there were lots of well-dressed vagrants who will sing to you a toneless christmas tune to beg for money. It was quite an experience.

Yes, it has become more crowded but Burnham Park has basically remained the same. You can still go here for the old-fashioned bike and boat rides. Our kids usually ask to go here so they could ride bikes. While they do that, we stay on the sidelines and sample the different street food being peddled : ice cream, junk food,... More

You can see lots of flowers, and you can relax here as long as you want. The air is fresh and exhilarating. During summer, the city government allows camping... More

Burnham Park is a beautiful nature park at the heart of Baguio City. It has a small lake to allow tourists to ride a small boat and experience the opportunity of seeing the trees around the park.

The park in the middle of the city. Very accessible to everything. From the market to the mall to the church and to the hotels. A place to rest and unwind and probably meet new friends.
