Crosby Park: Camping, Nature Trip and Kiddie Obstacle Course at Itogon Benguet

After our Balatoc Mines Tour, we were at the nearby sari-sari store drinking and resting when we noticed a poster about Crosby Park.  I recall going there when I was young but the memory is quite faint.  On the other hand, fellow Travel Tripster Kurt had never been there.  So instead of waiting for the next jeepney to bring us back to Baguio City, we decided to stop by Crosby Park.  We asked the miners who were waiting in the bench with us if it was just nearby.  They told us that it was walkable.

The funny thing about our walk was it was loonnnggg.  But, whenever we asked the locals if we were near, they all said the same thing... "it is very near".   By following their instructions, we found ourselves in a fenced vicinity called Crosby Park.

 The playground or the kiddie obstacle course is found on top.  It was pretty deserted during our visit.

 My vague memories begun to feel something familiar.

When I was a child, I was more daring with the jungle gym.  Now, I'm to scared to try hanging on it with my legs.

 I recall not being able to climb here when I was young because I've always been afraid of heights.  As I climb, I was still as scared as I was before but I did it anyway just to conquer my fear. =D

This looks easy but I couldn't balance and pass through it. =(

Of course, we didn't try this.  We'd have to be as foolish as kids to crawl on the dirt to go through this. =p

This is a bit of a challenge for me but I surpassed this as well.

The wooden house and picnic tables look old but they are still sturdy.

We Travel Tripsters imagine Crosby Park as a nice place for kids to play around and families to enjoy a picnic or camping together.   It was cool in the area as we were surrounded by pine trees.
