Eman’s Bday Trip – Baguio City (Part 2)
October 6, 2012
Burnham Park sits at the center of Baguio City. It was named after Daniel Burnham, the architect and urban planner of Baguio City. The park includes a man-made lake where boats of various shapes and sizes can be rented, a parade ground where most of the city’s important festivities (including the famous Flower Festival) is held, area for exercising and riding bicycles, etc.

The Baguio City Hall is located beside the Burnham Park. Other important structures (like Session Road, schools and the SM Mall) in the city are also located within walking distance of the park.
The park is an ideal place for exercise and there are many joggers, walkers and people who do aerobics/dances (led by an old guy).
When we visited Baguio, there was a dog walk to raise awareness about rabies prevention. There are also some people who walk or jog around the park with their dogs.
Of course, being visitors in Baguio, photo ops are de rigueur.
After Burnham Park, we took a taxi to Mines View Park… (continued in Part 3).
