Urban parks are one of the highlights of China. This is bigger than most, being part of the imperial complex. Enjoy wooded paths, lakeside pavilions and boating on the lake.

This park is beautiful and very big. Lovely for a stroll around. You'll see locals dancing and singing it's lovely to watch. Small cost to get into the park but worth it!

Very nice park to walk around. The white dagoba site also offers a good view of the city. Make sure to check where the entrance is as this site seems to have only 1.

There is a cafe inside this park but mainly sells snack foods and ice creams, cold drinks. No hot drinks though.
