Had a good walk in the park and watched the sunset. The park is clean and have all kinds of activity to enjoy. I loved the boat ride.🚤 There are also bicycles for rent for all ages. There is a beautiful lagoon to walk around for a nice breezy exercise. I also enjoyed street food..peeled green mangoes with shrimp paste was a delightful treat.😄
I love, love parks! I visited Burnham Park at night and it was still a good experience to watch people and enjoy the night air. You can relax here together with your family and friends without spending too much because there's no entrance fee. You can even bring your own food just make sure to throw it properly or you can try the boats for a fee.
a little crowded in the afternoon (but I'm learning it's that way _everywhere_ over here :) )... had fun flying the drone around, getting ice cream, talking with the locals... very clean and we only had a couple asking for handouts. really cool race track for the kids too... good place to visit when you're in town
A nice park with a man-made lake in the middle for a stroll to experience the cool climate of the City among the Pines. One can enjoy the green scenery, children's playground, bicycle ride or boat ride for hire. Located at a walking distance to the city hall and the famous Session Road, it's a favorite place to visit for tourists local and foreign.
Still a good place to go for strolls, walks, jogging, or bringing the kids for a picnic. Sometimes the trash cans placed here would be over filled though which is a bit sad. At night it’s at least better lighted as compared to before making the park a little bit safer to still stroll on.
