The park itself is nice to walk around and the memorial is good to visit to learn about the terrible events of 1976.

Outstanding exhibits - and most things were written in both Chinese and English to allow visitors to understand. My gf's family were victims and we were able to see their names on the wall. This place acts as a designated earthquake shelter, offers beautiful sculpture and preserved damage outside and inside. Best yet, it shows a timeline of Tangshan -... More

You can only read and listen in Chinese but no English (at list when was there). But pictures were talking themselves of pain and suffer of people. Also about their unity and human sensation.

Since 2012 there is a Wanda Place Shopping mall right around the corner, with a nice Starbucks and some good shops. In the evening there are a lot of young couples around the memorial, older...
