Travel: Baguio Children’s Park at Burnham Park
Baguio is known for its chilly afternoons, cold evenings, warm fireplaces, and good cuisine. Most tourists drive to the Pine City to go to different Baguio-based restaurants, view parks, old houses, etc. However, one ignored tourist spot remains to be overlooked by adults, but well-loved by kids — The Baguio Children’s Park.
Children could spend severals hours playing on the swings, see-saws, monkey bars, and slides. Adults are left with a few hours of peace and tranquilitly (read: No why questions — Why is the sky blue? Why is the ocean salty? Why is my hair black? etc.) while children play around the park.

Place: Baguio Children’s Park
Address: Burnham Park, Kisad Road, Baguio, Philippines
Telephone Number: TBA
Use of the park and its facilities is free of charge.
Go to the park early in the morning, preferably at 7AM to avoid the excruciating heat and humidity. (I brought my son to the park before 7AM, right before he took his morning shower. Our condo was a stone’s throw away from the park).
Wait for manong taho. He goes around the park at 7:30 AM to offer his strawberry-flavored taho to the playing kids.
