Swan lake is a nice place to have a walk and relax

It is a nice place to have a walk and relax... You can walk all around the lake... Peaceful and not very crowded in the winter when we visited it.

I'm living here as of now, visited in April this year when the trees and flowers blossomed and aromas produced by the plants! This lake is quite wide but no comparison with the West Lake in Hang Zhou though...you can talk a good promenade along the lake and picnic out here too when the weather is good. Try to put... More

Swan lake area is a nice place to just take a stroll or have a small picnic with friends. The skyscrapers far away looks nice.

The lake is next to the newly built local government building and is pretty nice. It has an artificial beach and a lot of people play around the beach during the summer. Swimming is prohibited, but it's nice to walk around.

Well i guess we all need parks and in this case a large lake was created in Hefei. There are nice pathways, and generally not to crowded. Its an ok place to spend a hour or two, there are no really interesting sites along the paths

We were lucky to have the opportunity to visit Hefei when there was snow and a walk around Swan Lake was very pleasant. The tree blossom draped with snow and the scent was particularly enjoyable. Would thoroughly recommend the lake if you are visiting Hefei. Like other commentators we were subjected to people taking photographs. Some people in our party... More

We used this park for a group picnic. As a group of foreigners we ended up being the main attraction. We actually had to ask people to please step back because they were too close(as in side by side) for our activities. And they certainly helped themselves to lots of photos. There were some nice flowers, but I prefer the... More

this should be a nice place for a walk but when i was there people stopped to take photos of me with their cellphone. 1 or 2 would have been ok, but after 15 it became a pain!
