BAGUIO CITY, March 5 — Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan signed Administrative Order No. 20 series of 2015 which institutionalizes rules and regulations governing the operation and maintenance of the Burnham Park Reservation, its facilities, resources for the guidance and direction of the general public.

In an interview on Thursday, Domogan said the rules will cover the facilities and features developed inside the reservation that provide comfort, convenience and services to the general public like Burnham Lake, Children’s Playground, Skating Rink and Fun Rides, Rose Garden and Burnham Bust, Orchidarium, Igorot Garden, Melvin Jones Grandstand and Football Grounds, Old Auditorium Parking Area, Athletic Bowl, Tennis Courts, Picnic Grove, Japanese Peace Tower, Pine Trees of the World, Sunshine Park, Swimming Pool complex and Ibaloy Heritage Garden.

Burnham Park will be used exclusively for legal and moral activities and will not be used for political activities, trade fairs, selling fireworks, firecrackers, pailaw and similar pyrotechnics products and other non-conforming uses that can impact on the environmental and historical value of the Park, he said.

All activities or facilities carried out in the park shall be subjected to control, regulation and licensing or permitting by the City Government of Baguio, he added.

The City Government reserves the right to disallow any activity.

TDomogan said the City Environment and Parks Management Office (CEPMO), Baguio City Parks Management Committee and the Security Guard Agency personnel contracted out by the City Government of Baguio were tasked to enforce the rules. (PNA)
