It's a very big open area where you'll also find Dongguan Exhibition Center & Dongguan Conference Hall. The Central Square was empty during the hot August day but it becomes alive at night with families, strollers, joggers, skaters, bikers, kite flyers, etc. You'll find a lot of restaurants and shops towards Hongfu West Rd.

Used to walk around this location with my wife a lot after dinner. We would walk to the square after getting dinner somewhere close by, and there are always couples, families, and kids running around. The atmosphere is good but it can get noisy from the traffic on Hongfu West Road. There's a library and park across the street, and... More

Dongguan Square is an amazing place to visit to marvel at all the wonderful architecture in and around the square. At the center of the square is a big red sculpture that overlooks a big pond type structure which at certain times emits lots of show fountains, unfortunately this wasn't running when i visited. The far end of the square... More

Loads of space, lots to see and plenty to do. Mainly concrete topped off with regimented flora. Some birds tweet frantically and many koi carp can be seen. It reminds me of a newer version of some larger squares found in Germany.

We frequent here quite often. Anything you want to do, from reading a book to watching kids play to playing badminton to Frisbee or watch the water feature. It is even great when they have something on show too.
