Information about Centennial Park
Dubbed as one of Baguio’s last frontiers because of its lush greenery and ecological beauty, Centennial Park is a botanical garden with greenhouses and nurseries. It has once been a zoo named as a Botanical Zoological Garden.
It has also been called different names in the past such as Igorot Village (because of the Cordillera huts and statues that can be found in the park), Imelda Park (after the country’s longest First Lady Imelda Marcos), and Baguio Botanical Garden. But most recently, it has been renamed to Centennial Park in celebration of Baguio’s centenary.
As a botanical garden, Centennial Park boasts of towering pine trees and other lush greens. It also houses several greenhouses and nurseries for propagation of different species of plants and insects ensuring ecological balance in the summer capital of the Philippines.
How to get there
Centennial Park is located between two other tourist attractions in Baguio namely Teachers Camp and Wright Park, along the scenic Leonard Wood Road, just a kilometer away from Session Road. You can ride a jeepney or taxi going to the park, or join a guided tour that includes this attraction.
Best time to visit
It is a highly-recommended all-year round destination. The park is open daily, but it’s best to visit it during off-peak season to avoid big crowds.
