A free leisurely park in the center of Shenzhen. It is a nice place to relax, read or have a picnic. Currently the temperature is comfortable in Shenzhen, so it is nice to relax here, during the humid months of the summer, it may be not so comfortable. You will find people playing badminton, doing various types of Chinese dances,... More

we went here as part of a day tour from Hong Kong. The park is lovely and peaceful and well worth visiting. However, our visit felt rather staged as the guide was very keen to point out that everyone was extremely happy and wanted us all to join in the Tai chi, dancing and sword displays that just happened to...

Lots of walking paths around a large lake where you can rent boats. Pretty gardens and paths. Colourful scene

Saturday, Nikki, had us onboard a pedal boat (designed for our shorter legged far eastern cousins) racing around an island looking at birds. That and turtles. And Chinese people taking photographs of the foreigners on their lake. Lychee Park is stunningly arranged, a large boating lake, moon bridges, expansive green fields and tree-lined pathways. Flowers, water lilies, frog filled ponds,... More

... if you are in the neighbourhood. As the sun sets, this park gets more busy especially during the hot months. It's a nice , clean park. Unlike most European parks, this park is very safe in the evening. You'll see many families walking and playing. No entrance fee, so definitely worth a visit :) It's a short walk from... More

This park is located close the Hong Kong border and possibly Shenzhen's most interesting area for a tourist (not that there are many tourists in Shenzhen, unfortunately). The park is fairly large for an urban park. Apparently Shenzhen has enough of these and they are large enough that it is also not crowded. Those facts together alone make it highly... More

The entrance to this park isn't too impressive but once your inside, you'll be pleasantly surprised. The park is much bigger than I imagined and it's well looked after and clean. There are lots of walk ways throughout the park and you will see lots of locals enjoying family activities on hot days. Me and my partner took a boat... More

I read that Lychee Park is a break from the big city, and it definitely is. It is nicely wooded with a few ponds. There is a playground, lots of open space where there were people taking dance lessons and practicing Tai Chi, and a randomly placed exhibit of beehives and beekeeper suits. Lychee park is a wonderful place to... More

I spent a fantatic Sunday morning in this sprawling inner-city park. Impeccably maintained, it is very popular with locals, but never crowded since it is large enough for those seeking solitude and respite from the city. Only negative is a lack of food options. Take your own!
