M1157: Burnham Park Postcard

The postcard shows the Burnham Park man-made lake in Baguio City. Burnham Park was named after the American architect and urban planner, Daniel Hudson Burnham, who laid the plans for the city. The park features a man-made lake situated at the center where tourists can enjoy boating with rented boats. Aside from boating, tourists can also rent bikes or visit the orchidarium. During my college years in the city, the park used to have a skating rink. The boats nowadays looks very different than the boats seen in the postcard.

A bust of Daniel Burnham was erected in the northern section where a rose garden is also located.
