Mines View Park is an overlook park on the northeastern outskirts of Baguio in the Philippines.

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]
