There isn’t all much to see or do here except for the actual pond. On the other hand, the pond is very pretty with its bridge and temple and if you’re lucky, a view of Jade Dragon snow mountain in the distance. Nice but sort...More

80 RMB ($12), free under 12 and after 60. It allows you to do the perfect photo of the bridge and the pagoda with the reflection of the mountain in the lake. If the weather is not nice, it is a bit expensive for just...More

The water is clean and full with beautiful coloured fish. The green forest surrounds the pond and there is a beautiful stone bridge with carved marble railings. There are many benches near the water to stop and enjoy the scenery.

The park is nice, but definitely not worth the 80 yuan entrance fee. There is no student discount as well. Very similar to other parks in china that you can get in for free or fire a fare price.

A beautiful lake with mountain background. A place to sit and watch the locals. Any spare is occupied with people doing their daily exercise either in groups or alone. You can find a quiet corner and just relax

My son and I visited this park on an overcast day. It was well maintained and had lots of places to feed gold fish and other carp. The pool dates from 1737 in the Qing dynasty. In the distance is the Jade Snow Mountain

This park is really lovely and you will need time to walk around it. Amazing views of the mountains in the back ground. It has a beautiful pagoda in the middle of the lake. We got some lovely photos here. Enjoy!

Average, disappointing actually. Nothing worth seeing for the 40yuan entrance fee (you can keep the ticket and visit again multiple time)
