Mirador Heritage and Eco Park: A New Place of Reflection and Relaxation in Baguio City



As one of the ways to start this new year, let’s explore Mirador Heritage and Eco Park, a new place to relax and have a break from all the tiring events that happened last year.

What’s Inside Mirador Heritage and Eco Park 

These are the attractions inside the Mirador Heritage and Eco Park.

Rock Gardens

This new destination at the Mirador Hill Eco Park is where you can see different rock formations. At Rock Gardens, you will be hiking for a bit so for safety purposes, use footwear suitable for hiking, and wear comfortable clothes.

Arashiyama Bamboo Grove 

If St. Francis Xavier Seminary has a Kawayanan or Bamboo Eco-Park at Pacdal, Liteng, at Mirador Hill you can also enjoy the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. This area is one of the relaxing parts of the eco-park and this is one of the best spots to take instagrammable photos.

Peace Memorial

The Mirador Hill’s Peace Memorial was blessed last December 2020. In this part of the eco-park, you can see the Torii Gate, a Bell which is repurposed from an unexploded bomb dropped during WWII at the Mirador Hill, and a Multi-terraced Landscape. And, here are two of the views you might encounter when you visit Mirador Hill’s Peace Memorial: 

Sunset View
