What’s good about this place is there is no entrance fee in the farm itself but if you want to pick strawberries you’ll pay depending upon how many kilos of strawberries you picked, and what I love the most is there is a free taste ice cream for everyone.

WRIGHT PARK

Wright Park is located at eastern part of the City. One of my favorite features of the Park is the “Pool of Pines” a elongated rectangular shape body of water located in front of the The Mansion. There are tall pine trees and street lamp post on the both sides of the park which makes it more beautiful and elegant. You can also ride a horse  and rent a native Igorots dresses for pictures at Wright Park.

MINES VIEW PARK

The most popular and most visited park in Baguio City. The park overlooks the mining town of Itogon on the observation deck. Its spectacular sights cannot me missed when visiting Mine View Park.

Along the entrance of the park are stalls and shops that sells different types of handicrafts, souvenirs, wood baskets, sweaters, shirts, blankets and other variety of items.

What I really look up to in Mines View Park are these:

 

GOOD SHEPHERD CONVENT

It is usually the next stop for most visitors coming from Mines View Park. The store is known for different types of product or “pasalubong” made by the nuns. Most sought products are ube, strawberry and coco jam.

The proceeds they generated in the sale of their products are used for different charities sponsored by the Good Shepherd Convent and maintenance of the convent. At the end of the parking lot is a observation deck where one gets to see the Cordillera mountains and valley. The compound of the convent also has a garden with various plants and pine trees.
