I arrived at Baguio City 3:30 in the morning. Since it was still too early for the hostel check-in I visited burnham park and roam around the park to relax. The place is too quiet and I enjoyed it. I went back in the afternoon to fulky enjoy the place.

it's a fact. you've not actually been to baguio if you have not explored burnham park. when i was still working in this city, i would while my time away in this place. i could become oblivious to the crowd by just sitting on one of the benches facing the man-made lagoon, observing people from different walks of life who were trying desperately to manoeuvre themselves on the murky waters while i enjoyed sipping a glassful of strawberry tahô i bought from a nearby ambulant vendor. sometimes, i got to be asked to take someone's group picture. at times, when boredom struck, i volunteered to shoot couples who struggled with their selfies.

we frequent burnham now as a family during our quick visits to baguio. my son would go biking sometimes or eat street foods from nearby stalls. this is a great place for bonding with family members, friends or a special someone with no entrance fee.

Well if you are travelling with 4 kids and its been awhile since you have done physical exercises, i would suggest that you drink an energy drink and have a ibuprofen medicine (for body aches) ready before you go to burnham park.... Just kidding!!!

Generally speaking the park is so alive, its full of activities. The huge park is a round about for vehicles at the busy center of Baguio. Once you enter the park there are a lot of trees, plants, small groups of people sitting on the ground enjoying the afternoon breeze, the lake and then as you move along you will notice is the tribikes / bikes for rent that you can use to drive around the park. So once my toddler, preschooler and grader saw the tribikes all of them wanted to ride one and Daddy has to drive it...... so that's when the energy drink becomes handy.....

Biking around the park is relatively safe since the park road is exclusively use for the bikes and pedestrians only. The tribike route roams around the lake and my passenger kids could easily see the paddle boats. So after biking the kids rushed to ride a paddle boat and daddy has to row the boats..... remember the ibuprofen?

Burnham Park is really advisable for a stay in Baguio. I have no idea why they want to spend billions of Peso to upgrade it - as it's already very nice.

There's other places in Baguio which are actually quite terrible and the money would be better spend on - but hey - all we can expect is after the upgrade it's even more beautiful.

Nothing negative about Burnham Park really... especially the afternoons it's beautiful to play badminton or do BBQ at the park..

The park itself is free - everything inside the park you gotta pay for of course..

Burnham Park was fun to get to visit and roam around. I was by myself when I visit the park, enjoying the beauty of the vicinity with a perfect cold weather. Surprisingly I saw my college friend there and was able to bond with her. I really enjoyed this trip with my college friend. What small world to see her in this place my long time no see friend. 😊
