Sun Island has the snow and ice indoor site, a Japanese Friendship water fall (fake), a Russian Village (kitchy), and various spots that look good for picnics. We enjoyed walking around, and hopping on and off the tourist conveyances. It was worth the entry fees for all the attractions, including the Russian village. There, we got replica passports, saw large... More

Sun Island is a large green area with a man made lakes with a man made waterfall and rocks. The gardens are very extensive and well maintained. The best way to get around is by the trolley cars. The squirrel island was very popular and they were very cute. There are also some deer that you can pay to pat.... More

Bicycles are for hire to get around this large park. The gardens are varied and immaculate.The wide man-made waterfall has a huge lake filled with carp at its base.

The park is large and one should take the trolley around and get the most out of it. The ice sculpture inside the building was great to see and should be a must on the list if you go to the park. Nice to walk around as well and take in all the different attractions. There were not as many... More

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.
