Owner description: 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.

Our last visit to baguio was during the year 2009. And through what I've seen this November, it still did not change. It's still the simple but elegant park. It's like the Ayala Park of the North ;)

The famous Burnham Park though I can say is average and small yet when I went there, it was clean and the flowers and trees were well maintained. I like this park because all I hear are the sounds of children and some other people instead of the loud blaring music typical in open places in big cities. It felt good to see people throwing their trash in trash bins. It was a really nice afternoon and everyone seemed to be all smiles or laughter as they do stroll, bike, ride the boat or just sitting down quietly or conversing with their companions. Hope the charm and beauty of this park will not vanish.

Burnham park is right in the middle of Downtown Baguio. It offers lots of things to do there. It's a big place which is often where tourist hang out. In the middle of the park, they have the man made lagoon where you can go rent a boat and enjoy boat riding for hours. On the side of the park they have the Bicycle area, this is where you can rent Bicycles from small(for kids) to big(for adults) and also one with side cars and ride the bike for an hour or more.
The park also is a place for people who loves to exercise in the morning, walking or jogging, tai chi, yoga, aerobics, etc...It's a good place because they have very fresh and cool air all day.
Nice and cheap restaurants are also all over the place.
On one part of the park there is also the mini carnival where you can go roller skates and do arcade games too. They also have a few rides you can enjoy.
On Sundays, the place is full of families camping on the park, kids running around playing and parents relaxing.
Must see in Baguio too!

Burnham Park is okay especially for those with kids but please can someone be assigned to upkeep the place especially in the litter and trash department. The children park has seen it's best days , so goes with the main park. It can still be shiny tourism jewel if someone takes charge to clean, improve and organized the place. The park has many activities for the young, biking, skating, boat rowing, the template is there, just more order and cleanliness please. The kids park layout is in fact better than that of Manila . Going to this park will not make you feel relax, one word summary " chaotic"
