Bao Zheng has a very special place in the Chinese history and the more you walk through the park the more you realise how much power he had during the emperor days. If you Pau extra you can get an English speaking guide - I had Sun Eifun and she was a great help. Highly recommended!

A nice and large park to walk around including a big lake makes it a nice area to get away from urban sprawl. Also a bit of history as it was Bao Zheng's home. Most of it looks like a modern rebuild to try and make it look 'authentic' so not too much real history, but still provides some insight into a famous civil servant

There is so little to offer tourists and travellers in Hefei in the way of sights, but the Bao Zheng complex in the Lord Bao Park is definitely the highlight. The park itself is very nice and worth a stroll around the lake, which is free. The visit the three Lord Bao monuments, you can buy a combined ticket of RMB50, which is a small saving than buying all three. There's also a separate 'floating village' to visit, but that's not really worth the time or cash. The temple, the pavillion and the tomb are the three main sites and all worth exploring.

Great place for enjoying a weekend walk! The lake and garden are well maintained. You can always see some staff cleaning up the leaves and trash. The night view is good too. It is definitely a worth visiting place in Hefei.

Was there back in May 2015 on a raining afternoon, I've realised that it was important to see the palace/pagoda in the very far side of the ancestral house. There weren't a lot of people there, so I felt quite happy. Overall, I think the temple is very big and can house a total of 300 people. Have a good one.

As I visited on a regular weekday afternoon in winter, the place was not crowded. The tallest building (as seen in the picture) is a 5-storey monument (accessible by elevator) to the life, philosophies and works of Justice Bao, a judge renowned for his sense of righteousness and equity as much as for his "blackened" face. In reality, at least from the portraits drawn of him, his face was not any darker than the average Chinese's. This site is situated in what seems to be a pleasant park to spend a quiet afternoon in, and is centrally located. Would definitely recommend a trip there.

The combo ticket costs 50 yuan (or around 46-47 on one of the travel apps) and covers 4 related sites, including this one. Children up to 18 years of age can get in for free, but this was not always enforced consistently at each of the 4 sites. A friend who was 18 going 19 was not allowed to get in at a garden/pavilion site (whose name I forget) because the entry assistants insisted that she was no longer 18 but over 18, even though she was not 19 yet. In the end, she went to get a student ticket but it turned out unnecessary as the very small site was basically under renovation, and all the other sites allowed her to get in for free on proof of her national ID, which indicated her birthday. If it happens to you, don't even bother arguing (if you can speak enough Mandarin to be able to do so), just skip it.

Lord Bao was a judge in ancient China. And he was not political in all his dealings. He was a tough judge, but a fair judge. He was willing to go after royalty and peasant's alike for broken laws and rules. The grounds are beautifully kept, lots of Lotus flowers, wax museum displays and signs in both English and Mandarin. It is small, less than 1.5 hours to go through everything. It was a nice local diversion.

A good place to hangout.
Good scenery and historic temple inside the park is a highlight.
It closes at 5.30 pm, so get there before that
