There are many paths. In fact, it's not too big. It may be valuable to visit on summer as the lotus blooming.

We grabbed a taxi from the hotel. Arrive on a weekday afternoon. Was not crowded. Nice Asian garden that one could just relax in and reflect. Special sites to see?? No. Just nice place.

We visited around lunchtime on a weekday and found Green Lake to be very noisy, crowded and not especially attractive - very commercial in respect of shops and kiosks. Probably best to visit early morning because the setting and location are quite beautiful.

If you visit Kunming you absolutely must take a walk around the Green Lake. It’s a beautiful place with many paths that lead to small gardens or a different view of the water. A great way to unwind after a hard days work!
