WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s a refreshing, relaxing spot to kick back, especially when we’re jetlagged. We like to come in the mornings and evenings when locals are out exercising and socializing.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Not much at all. We love how tranquil life is inside the park.
GOOD TO KNOW
This is the largest and also one of the newest parks in town (it opened in 1994). Bike rentals are available. If you happen to be in town in December, check out the annual flower festival held here. The park is bounded by XinYi Road, HePing East Road, XinSheng South Road, and JianGuo South Road.
