Let us pause for a while and take a peek at the fascinating wonders of nature, the majesty and the glory of God's creation and the spectacle of human engineering. Unfortunately, I cannot go to these places in as much as I want to so, I’m just taking this virtual expedition. I hope you can join me in this online adventure.

The Burnham Park

Burnham Park is the heart of Baguio City. Almost all major developments of the city like commercial centers, the Baguio Cathedral, the City Hall and the City Market have risen around this popular tourist spot.

According to website, much of Burnham’s original design has remained along the years although some improvements to it have been undertaken. Burnham Park has retained its glory as one of the most famous park in the country.

Burnham Park has been famous for its man made lagoon with boats for hire, the Children's Playground, the Skating Rink, the Rose Garden, the Orchidarium and the Igorot Garden. You can see there the Melvin Jones Grandstand, the Athletic Bowl, a Picnic Grove, the Japanese Peace Tower, Pine Trees of the World and the Sunshine Park as well.
