Essentially this is just a beautiful park however the views of the jade dragon snow mountain worth spending some time here. You get to see old naxi women in their traditional outfit going about their lives and a playground for children. I spent a total of 2 hours just strolling and enjoying the park and enjoyed every moment.

More a series of small romantic lakes rather than a pond. Stunning location with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

A lovely place to relax. The views are amazing and the park itself is very well kept. We climbed the hill In the park which is pretty easy ( a bit steep but okay) and is well worth if for the amazing views. We also had an amazing coffee from a little cafe by one of the pools. I would... More

Renowned for its spectacular view of Yulong Jade Mountain, it doesn't disappoint. The pagoda and bridge make for a lovely composition. Tranquil place.

We strolled through the Black Dragon Pond park in the early morning and had a glimpse of local life. The Snow Mountain provides a lovely backdrop and the lake is full of fish, both little and large, black and gold. There are bridges to cross - more vantage points for great photos. A 'tai chi' class was in practice, old... More

Really nice photo opportunity and beautiful gardens. The museums around the area are also really informative (with excellent English captions). Come early before all the Chinese tour groups get in

Beautiful lake against the backdrop of the Jade Dragon snow mountain. Beautifully crafted gardens and ponds with museum and pavilions in the park itself. The pool looks black but the reflection in the pond make it look like a mirror image. Good for taking wedding picture as well. Very serene and quiet place. Another place not to be missed. Even...

Great place from the old town and entrance is free with the conservation ticket to the old town. To get the best picture, watch out for the clouds. They blow over quickly and if you are quick, you can get an unobstructed view of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

We had a great time in this park... we even came twice! once on a rainy day- we walked under our umbarellas and it was so beautiful. The second time was sunny, so we hiked the hill in the park, and the view was amazing. Just notice you have to pay the 80 yuan tax in order to go in,... More

We visited this park early morning one cold day which was good as there weren't many people to contend with. Visited again late afternoon next day and got some great shots of the lake and buildings but was quite busy.
