Mines View Park is an overlook park on the northeastern outskirts of Baguio in the Philippines. It is five kilometers away from the Heart of Baguio, passing through the Botanical Garden, the Mansion House, and the Pacdal Circle.

Located on a land promontory 4 km from downtown Baguio, the park overlooks the mining town of Itogon, particularly the abandoned gold[1] and copper mines[2] of the Benguet Corporation, and offers a glimpse of the Amburayan Valley.[3]

The observation deck is situated below a winding stone-covered stairway close to the parking area.[3]
