It's important to visit here i) in the daytime and ii) before visiting the Ice Festival, otherwise its attraction will be impaired. It's relatively pricey, but definitely worth it to view all the beautiful intricacies in the carving. I can imagine it being underwhelming at night as it just can't compare to the dazzling aspect of the Ice Festival.

Ferries are frequent and the grounds well worth a visit. We enjoyed the little bus ride round the parkland and also seeing the Russian House.

Sun Island Park—the venue for the famous ice carving festival. Battery operated trolley cars are available to take the visitors around but a lot of people walked too. The park is basically a nice place to stroll around and have fun in the water slides.

This park has beautiful snow sculptures that are truly amazing. You walk through a very large park at your own pace. Come during the daytime to visit and take a taxi to get here as walking on the river seems insane. We visited here and then had our taxi driver continue to the Siberian Tiger Park which was also great.

The snow sculptures are majestic! Best to go here with a lot of time to spare, as it is fun to have some rest breaks at the cafes or coffee nooks scattered around the park. We tried the dog-pulled sleds, but that was only for one short loop. Sunset here was picturesque.

If it's not festival time, the area is barren and windy and bitterly cold. It's the thing to do during the festival. Many couples walk around here and brave the cold during the winter. During the summer, the trees don't really bloom but it's still the thing to do if your a local and not so much if you're a... More

Like all of the snow sculpture art works. Main sculpture is very creative. As has been the peak period, the park is not crowded, very comfortable.
