This park has palace ruins such as a large gate, bridges, and some pieces of columns. It is nice to walk around and people watch. It is next to Ming Gu Gong metro station and near Nanjing Museum and the Presidential Palace. Not a must see place but worth going if you want to relax.

There is nothing much left of the original palace. Nonetheless, its a long walk from point to point of the original palace. The original pillar base are the only ones left of the original structure. With that one can only imagine the vast expanse of the palace. The original rampart of one gate is still standing, A bonus is that in the park you may find fares which sell books of martial artist practicing their discipline.

There is hardly anything left of the palace, other than some rather unidentifiable stones, but the park the ruins sit in is still well worth a stroll, if only to people watch and take a peaceful break. You can climb the vast Meridian Gate at the south end, that once formed part of the city wall and since it's all free, it's well worth a stop over. On the north side of the park, you'll find buskers and concession stands.

Nothing much to see. However, you can see the daily activity of the Nanjing people. No closing time. There is an information board to explain about the place
