This time I will bring you to a historical park called Botanical Garden and recently named “The Centennial Park”

Foggy and summer

Baguio City is gifted with variety of cultural, historic and scenic attractions that make the city important and interesting destination for foreign and local tourist. Baguio can be foggy during rainy season and best weather during summer starting February until May.

The Botanical Garden

The Botanical Garden- known as Igorot Village features native huts; said to capture the ethnic spirit and cultural legacy of the native people. This park is more peaceful compared to Burnham Park where there are amusement facilities. Botanical Park does not have amusement and you will surely enjoy serenity surrounding the area, suitable for soul searching and nature tripper. This is also home of Artist Guild, Baguio a natural haven for artist because of its lovely natural and peaceful environment.

The stairs

You will be welcome by the huge stone depicting the native’s cultural tradition. The stairs down were made of stone, this made the park a non-wheelchair friendly because of the stone paths, and most pathways are made of stones not suitable for wheelchair.

Botanical Park

Botanical Park is an ideal place to learn about the cultural origins and traditions of the Northern Philippines. There are many native tribes in the country and Igorot is among the best known. The Cordillera region in Baguio City is their ancestral home. During the American occupation, American missionaries Christianized the natives and English becomes the mother tongue of this town that is why old folks speak English fluently than Filipino as the mother tongue of the country.

flowering plants

You can also buy different varieties of flowering plants but you need to consider the climate since those plants survives only with cold weather.

The Art Gallery

The Art Gallery – Botanical Garden known for “home of the artists “you can find the art gallery inside the park. However, due to open ponds surrounding the area, you have to take proper care when there are small kids with you.

You should not miss to visit this park, and feel the native way of life.

FOR YOU AS YOU COMMENTED THERE

You, Lady Carol

Ma'am,
You bring tears to my eyes
the first commentator above
Thinks….
I am someone I am really not
She got me knocked off
From Triond and Wikinut
I just can't say why
an illusory mind....
Perhaps, sadly

she will still say again,
I am her ex or lover etc


what have I done on earth t
To earn her wrath
Except for poetry,
I see no commonality
.may she prevail upon her own,
as I am a Peoples poet

Love is my forte...
Love as in friendship
And not as they
Small minded folks think.
I am indeed indebted to you,
To have shed so much light
And
I do hope your voice is carried far and wide,
So that the Wikis and Trionds and others too
Can see jealousy can have only one friend.

Glad you wrote back
They had banned me and hope
You will reproduce this message,
In your columns
For those who love m,
As much as I do you all

I am an anonymous poet,
Only Anon me,
Is Loverme

Thanks all
Loverme


THANKS
