Small place but worth going and seeing. The pond has been updated and is great. Quiet and peaceful. There is also a tea room on the grounds.

A Sunday morning stroll through a beautiful garden setting in the middle of a city...what could be better? The blooming flowers smelled great and the sun came out making the visit even more enjoyable. It is well worth the price of admission.

Impressive example of a Chinese urban garden that is 100% authentic. Great plantings, tea room and outstanding tour guides that know their stuff. VERY interesting.
