Burnham Park

No first-time visit to Baguio City will be complete without going to Burnham Park at the very center of the city. To the northwest is the City Hall and off to the northeast is the famous Session Road. Standing imposingly on a hill to the east is SM City Baguio.

Named after the city’s planner, American Daniel Burnham, the park’s centerpiece attraction is the approximately 2-hectare man-made lagoon where people can hire boats and row around. To the southeast of the lagoon is the city’s popular skating rink and south of that is an Olympic-sized track-and-field oval and an Olympic-sized swimming pool. To the northeast is the park’s soccer field and grandstand, where concerts are often held. The street to the southwest of the lagoon is a popular bicycle area, besides which is a large children’s park, and to the west of the lagoon is the Orchidarium, showcasing many varieties of flowers and plants that grow within the region.

See more websites about Burnham Park in Google or view some pictures from Google Images or read and improve its Wikipedia article.
