Baguio City mulls Botanical Garden entrance fee hike

The city government here will conduct a public hearing on May 25 to get input on the proposed increase in the entrance fee at the Botanical Garden, one of its most popular attractions.

Public Information Office chief Aileen Refuerzo on Friday afternoon said the City Environment and Parks Management Office (CEPMO) will lead the public hearing at 2 p.m. at the Baguio Convention Center.


The city government thru the Treasury Office collects entrance fees at PHP5 for children and PHP10 for adults. There is no proposed amount yet regarding the hike.

The collection is based on the provisions of the City’s Environmental Code passed in 2016 or Ordinance No. 18-2016.

The Botanical Garden underwent beautification that led to its closure in 2021. Among those that developed and improved were the orchidarium, Dahlia Garden, Cosmos Bed, Azalea Mountain, Sunflower Section, Milflores River, Colors of Impatiens, Waves of Yellow Marguerite, Lilies of Baguio, Asian Garden, and Everlasting garden.

It was reopened on March 6, 2022 in time for the resumption of the Panagbenga Festival.

Entrance fee collection has become a source of revenue for the city.

In March, the city collected PHP800,000 from entrance fees and over PHP1.5 million in April, the city information said.
