A lovely park with lakeside walks and pavilions. The water lilies are amazing and the tea house a tranquil spot to sit back and watch the world go by

35rmb to visit seemed to deter the usual crowds. This is a very pleasant lake, about an hour to walk around with extra time if you want to have a look at the antique furniture exhibition - interesting. Some nice areas by the Lily ponds and lots of places for photos. Worth a visit.

This is a small lake in a small park in the city. It is a great place to see local residents exercise and socialize but I think Xuan lake is nicer with more to do.

Visited in Nov 2012, this is one of the most scenic lakes I've seen. No comparison with the West Lake in Hang Zhou but it's still worth a while to see. The surrounding are peaceful with willow trees, stone bridges, and other palaces. Nice indeed!

I love this park. It's a bit on the smaller side for Nanjing and compared to Xuan Wu. But it means it's usually not as crowded. It's a nice relaxing walk around the lake. Different seasons, there may be different exhibits. We went in fall and there was a water lily exhibit. You can go visit the statue of the... More

This little lake is great to take a little stroll. Not too big not too small. Good place for a first date. If things go good there are lots of little romanic places to hang out. If she turns out to be a crazy, you can easily walk quickly around the lake. Don't forget to take your picture with the... More
