What makes it more beautiful, relaxing and soothing is the cool air, sometimes you have to encounter fogs, the tall pine trees and the beautifully blooming flowers around that blend well together to feel a Swiss-like village in the Philippines.
The ambiance is of great help to have a quiet time. Although the place is filled with a lot of people and activities, you still can't help but to feel a relaxing feeling in a relaxing scene given those variables at hand.
Aside from boating, anyone can also enjoy biking, jogging or simply walking around the lake.
Burnham Park is an urban park that is planned as part of Baguio's urban planning. The Burnham Park is named after Daniel Burnham, an American architect and an urban planner who laid out the plans for the city.
The man-made lake is the main feature of Burnham Park. Around the lake is filled with a lot of leisure activities and experiences.
At the southern part of the lake is a skating rink. At the Eastern part is the Melvin Jones Grand Stand and Football Field. This grand stand is where activities such as concerts, parades and political rallies are made. And there you have the football field. No wonder, the architect is from America, a football-crazy nation.
At the western part of the lake is the Children's Park and the Orchidarium where one can rent a bike - single bike, bike in tandem or bike with sidecar. There are also bikes for little kids.
At the northern part of the lake is the bust of Daniel Burnham where a rose garden is located.
Really, around the man-made lake is filled with activities. Aside from those mentioned from North to South and East to West, there are more activities waiting.
Among these plenty of activities are chatting with friends, picnicking, having pedicure and manicure, dating and name them.
As I observe the behavior of the people in this park, I observed that eating at the edges of the lake is a good choice especially with a hot sip of coffee and a hot barbecue.
It is also a place for family bonding. Really a nice choice.
