Was excellent but first week of october, so very crowded. Water lillies were gone, but the gates, bridges, weeping willow trees and the white dagoba were magnificent. Lots of walking too around the lake. Walkong distance of jingshan park, bell and drum tower.

This place is just wonderful to walk around especially when the lotus flowers are out. You can easily spend a few hours here and lots of photos.

Located in the heart of the city, this 1000-year old park is nicely preserved and not too crowded. There is a white pagoda perched on of the hill, you cannot miss it. The lake is buzzing with boating activities. A perfect place to unwind away...More
