Rizal Park | Things to do in -Baguio City
|Address:||Shanum Street, Baguio City|
Named after Daniel H. Burnham, the American architect who mapped the urban blueprint for Baguio City, Burnham Park is a 33 hectare garden of child-like amusement. Burnham Lake, which sits at the heart of the park, is busy with activities like boating (P200, up to 8 people) and paddle-boating (P150, up to 5 people), with an optional boatman (P50). Other activities in the park include biking (P40-50/hour) and photoshoot in tribal costumes (P10/shot). There's also the skating rink, the Orchidarium, and the Athletic bowl.
A must-visit before leaving the city, Baguio Public Market is located right at the lower end of Session Road and behind the Maharlika Center. It is here where visitors can buy souvenirs and handicrafts made in Baguio and Benguet Province.
Standing on Mary Hill, Baguio Cathedral is the largest Catholic church in the city and is the center of religious activities throughout the year. Its rose-colored facade and twin spires depicts the style of neo-gothic architecture. The cathedral's structure was the brainchild of CICM (Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae) Priest, Architect and Engineer, Rev. Leo Valdemans. Generous donations helped finish the parish which was only partially built in 1924. In dedication to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the parish was dubbed Our Lady of Atonement Cathedral. Enduring many plights, the Cathedral once served as an evacuation site during the Japanese occupation period in World War II. It also underwent rehabilitation after the traumatic earthquake that struck Baguio in 1990.
