The Heart of Baguio City.

Each of my Baguio trips, I never missed a visit at Burnham Park. Maybe that's the reason why it is called "The Heart of Baguio City". It is located in the middle of every thing that is rising around Baguio City.

ABOUT BURNHAM PARK

Designed by and named after premier American architect and urban planner, Daniel Hudson Burnham, who also designed the original plan for Baguio City. Burnham Park remains, to this day, one of the Philippines' most well known and best-loved parks.

The park retains much of Daniel Burnham's original design and layout a century ago, with a few features added, in true Filipino fashion, to make it a vibrant center of activity for everyone to enjoy.

There are a lot of things both tourists and locals can enjoy during their stay in the park. Boating, biking, skating, jogging, strolling, Zumba, picnic, and simply sitting on a bench and enjoying the scenery are just some of the many things you can do when you make your way to Burnham.

Burnham Park has 12 cluster areas:

  1. the man-made lake with rowboats for hire that folks refer to as the Burnham Lagoon,
  2. the Children's Playground,
  3. the Skating Rink,
  4. the Rose Garden,
  5. the Orchidarium,
  6. Igorot Garden,
  7. Melvin Jones Grandstand,
  8. the Athletic Bowl,
  9. a Picnic Grove,
  10. the Japanese Peace Tower,
  11. Pine Trees of the World, and
  12. Sunshine Park.

Originally intended to serve as a much-needed green park, to provide a bustling city with a peaceful environment with wide open green spaces, Burnham Park under Filipino administration is now more of an amusement park with boating, bicycle and skating areas, sports and gaming areas, plus a few eateries.


ABOUT DANIEL HUDSON BURNHAM

Burnham (1846-1912) was one of Chicago's greatest architects and planners, whose Philippine resume includes Dewey (now Roxas Boulevard) in Manila, Philippines as well as Baguio City itself, which was both a bustling mining and and recreational town!

Mr. Burham had grand  visions for everything he designed. In 1904, the Philippine capital city of Manila, he developed the areas outside the walled city of Intramuros, with a great emphasis on classic-al buildings and wide open spaces, taking into consi-deration the Philippines' Spanish influence as Spain had just six years before turned the Philippines over to the Americans.

For Baguio, he 'forced' a splendid geometric pattern amid rolling hills and wind-ing roads, which is what we know now as Burnham Park, around which the rest of the city was built.
