Recreational Park at the Heart of the City Dec 12, 2014
Burnham Park is a recreational park situated at the center of the city of Baguio. Lots of excitement and entertainment await the visitors visiting the park. Vendors of different sorts scattered anywhere from place to place. Some people even used the landscaped ground for picnic and some other outdoor activities. Some children go for biking, some go for jogging. But all above mentioned activities were secondary only. The main thing that makes Burnham Park popular is the boating adventure on a man-made lake. There, you can rent those colorful boats and have them moved by paddles from from one end to the other end of the lake. You can choose the size of the boat of your choice. In our case, we rented the bigger one just enough for the six of us.

It’s more fun in Burnham!

Burnham Park is centered around a man-made lake located at the heart of the city. It was named after the city's planner, Daniel Burnham. The park is a favorite place of local residents and visitors alike. There are different facilities for recreation and relaxation that are available in the park. You can row a boat, have a picnic, attend an outdoor concert, watch a football game, go biking, or just take a leisurely stroll around the park.

Within the park are tennis and basketball courts, a few restaurants, outdoor kiosks, a children's playground, and an orchidarium where various kinds of plants, trees and flowers are sold. Chairs and benches are distributed around the park for those who just want to sit down and relax. The football field at the eastern side of the park is sometimes used for parades, carnivals, concerts, political rallys, and for display booths during special events and activities. On certain Sundays and some special occasions, cadets of the Philippine Military Academy perform a parade and review or a silent drill exhibition at the field. Just after the big earthquake that hit the city in 1990, many of its residents fled their homes for fear of aftershocks and temporarily set camp in this field.
