M137-85: Wright Park Postcard

Postcard Size: 4"x6"
Postcard Type: View card with green border
Printed by:
JMC Press, Inc., Quezon City
Purchased at Goodwill Bookstore

The postcard shows the Wright Park (pony area) which was named after Governor Luke E. Wright who gave Daniel Burnham orders to build Baguio as a recreational facility for American soldiers and civilians.

What makes Wright Park famous are the "Pool of Pines" that fronts the main gate of The Mansion and the Riding Circle (which is actually a triangle). One can hire horses and enjoy horseback ride around the area, and can take you along South Drive, the Mines View Park area or to Outlook Drive.

The back of the postcard reads:
Wright Park. Cool weather and recreational facilities to horseback riding to golf makes
Baguio City the country's ideal summer capital
