Park in the city cener

One of the top attractions in Jinan city center. It is a place for relaxation and leisure stroll. Take time to walk through the sideways and visits the gardens.

Daming Lake is a good place for a stroll. In addition to the lake itself, you'll see people dancing, doing martial arts, photographing brides, playing musical instruments or singing. One part of the lake requires an admission fee, much of it doesn't. There are restaurants and a former home of a poet you can visit for a small fee.

It was a good stroll along the lake and the park area. The is where you should visit after you see the springs and the canals.

Tranquil spot in the middle of the city. Well kept walkways and parkland surround the lake. I visited on a Sunday afternoon in Spring the weather was warm and pleasant. There were brides having photos taken and musicians playing in bands purely for their own enjoyment and friendship. Quite unforgettable really.

If you're in Jinan, Daming Lake is well worth a visit. It's a nice place to stroll around. You'll be able to see brides posing for portraits, people dancing and exercising as well as the lovely lake and China's unique bridges. I often walk here and find it's more lively at night when more musicians come to perform.

It lives up to the 5 star rating for attraction. The spacious and clean lake is surrounded by properly paved walkway for people. The entrance fee is free and they even had slopes for those who are on wheelchairs and strollers. Plenty of stalls selling local food, toys, drinks in there but the cleanliness of the area is still maintained... More

I loved being at the lake! Ok, it's not a 'must see' or a great attraction, but it's a lovely place to be. Just being close to nature and seeing trees is a treat for the soul. If you're in town, have a wonder down.

A nice artificial lake in the center of Jinan. Lots of tourists there, even on a cold Sunday morning.

I visited here on my own as it was within walking distance of my hotel. The lake is bigger than I was expecting, I was able to spend a good couple of hours wandering around. I found it a nice space to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There's a section of the lake which you... More
