If you are interested in the Chinese culture and their way of life, this is a good place to visit. Interestingly, you can find many fun facts like what do the people use to keep themselves warmth during winter. There are also some Chinese paintings and pottery in the garden.

I would rate this as the best attraction in Weifang, and not all that well-known. I have visited on several occasions. It's a unique part of old Weifang, It has a very authentic feel.

Majority of the buildings are under construction. The buildings which aren't, have ugly advertisements across them. I wouldn't waste your time & effort going there

Definitely one of Weifang's most important and impressive heritage attractions. This compact, traditional Chinese estate somehow survived The Cultural Revolution and its architectural treasures and splendid scholar gardens have been well tended and cared for since. It is well deserving of its national cultural heritage site status.

One of the best gardens I've ever seen in China. Nicely kept. Definitely worth the 30 yuan I paid at the door. Don't forget your camera!

This is a small garden with the usual Chines style, with pavillions, laneways, courtyards, gardens and pond. It is neat and well-maintained. We visited in winter after a fall of snow, and found it quite delightful.
