The Baguio Botanical Garden is one of the green parks of the City of Pines. The main entrance to the Baguio Botanical Garden is along Leonard Wood Road, between Teachers Camp and Wright Park. Once you see a sculpture made of cement and stone, congratulations! You are in the right place.

There are numerous jeepney lines that pass Leonard Wood Road, all coming from the Central Business District. Upon entering the garden, you can get your picture taken with real live Cordillerans who will be more than willing to pose for photos for a small tip. The Baguio Botanical Garden is also home to the Baguio Arts Guild, connect with your inner creative and give the art gallery a visit. Appreciate the different relics from Botanical Garden’s Igorot Village days with large statues depicting different Cordillera tribesmen and symbols.
