Beautiful park, and huge! If might take 2-3 hours to walk around the entire park. Young Mao looked like young Jim Morrison and very interesting. It's a park with fruit trees and green space, perfect for picnic or leisure stroll.

Great visit of several hours to take in the scenery and snap a few selfies in the process. Once you get tired of walking, you can take the regular island "trams". Nice views of the river too.
