OMG, do NOT go there during, weekends, long weekends (worse), China major holidays with even with the slightest sun shine... you will be swarmed with tourists both local and out of province. The patrons arrives in BUSES. That aside, the Hyatt can be a chilling spot for afternoon tea. The lunch is also almost impossible during holidays.

Although many bicycles there, still peaceful and spacious. Good for dating, picnic and cycling. The view is fantastic and the food just at the entrance of the Park is numerous and delicious.

Loved Songshan Lake. We rented bicycles for very little money and rode about halfway around the lake. It's a very long way, bring water. We were lucky to have a cool day. I'm told it can be hot. There were places along the way to buy water and softdrinks, icecream, etc. Lovely place. I will visit it again.

A perfect tourist spot for cycling fun. Family or bike fanatics. Quite a number of picturesque spots for rest. Bike rental available but conditions vary. Be mindful to expect a large crowd after 10am.

The reasonably peaceful lake, and with bicycle for rental at the entrance. The surrounding of the late is relatively clean, but not the lake water. There are some facilities built around the lake, but they are poorly managed and maintained.

A pleasant relief from from the bustle of China. Beautifully maintained and a pleasant walk. Watch all the locals doing Tai Chi.

Visiting small China towns often, to be able to take my bike and ride the trails for hours was a much needed breather. It's about 60 km from Shenzhen and maybe 25km from Dongguan. If you're in the area with your bike, or blades or if you just want to walk and enjoy the weather check it out

Indeed a relaxing experience to walk around the park and the lake with old people dancing and children playing around. Very convenient when you stay at the Sofitel hotels nearby!
