Located right across the gate of The Mansion is an elongated rectangular pool with varieties of flowers in array of colors lining both sides from end to end, Wright Park is a favorite among families and children who enjoy riding horses and ponies.

After a very brief peek at The Mansion, we crossed the road to Wright Park, walked along one side of the long pool with its dark-yellow colored waters, past the concrete gazebo onto a wide long flight of stairs going down to the stable of horses and ponies.  Two huge white dogs tied around a tree attracted our attention as they look very conspicuous with its odd features that seemed to be a cross breed between a dog and a lion, white and very fuzzy, they Chow Chows.

Down below are perhaps hundreds of horses and ponies for rent, which made Wright Park popular among kids.  The place is crowded during that Easter Sunday we were there.
Wright Park was constructed in honor of of Governor-General Luke E. Wright who served as the Governor-General of the Philippines in 1904 to 1906.

You can combine a visit to Wright Park, Botanical GardenThe Mansion, and Mines View Park,  in one day full DIY tour by public transport (jeepney) + walk.  All of these sights are along the same route.
Jeepney Fare              
P 10.00

How to get there:
Take the jeepney that goes to Mines View, along Mabini Street corner Harrison beside the Dane’s Bakery and adjacent to McDonalds Session Road.
The Mines View jeepneys will pass by The Mansion, Wright Park and Botanical Garden, so you can cover all those sights in one day.

Up next  -  Baguio Botanical Garden.
