We visited this park as part of our China tour. Unfortunately we only had a short stop so only saw a small part of the park, but we were left with many memories and wished we could have stayed longer. There are many people line dancing and singing or performing dances, etc, and lots more standing around watching. What amazed... More

Not the biggest, not the nicest and definitely not the quietest park in Chengdu but for people watching it is amazing. In western countries once people pass a certain age they disappear from view, not so in China. Parks are the best place to visit to see the retired Chinese people at play. from community dancing, sword practise, super huge... More

Our family frequently went to the people's park. It's easy to get to by subway, bus, or taxi. There's always a lot going on and it's a great place to people watch, or just sit and have tea. There are also a bunch of amusement park type rides that our kids always love.

There are apparently three teahouses in this park. We went to the one near the southern boundary, that has tables set out over a wide area: some by the water, others in Bamboo groves where musicians play. They take your order and bring you your tea, along with a big thermos of hot water, to top up with. You can... More

From our apartment, we walked across the road to the park. There were lots of people there, young and old. People were doing different things there and everyone appeared busy. Some were dancing, some were singing, others having tea at the teahouse, boating, enjoying the flowers writing words on the cement ground with a big brush, playing badminton and the... More

There were many locals engaging in various activities while I was there. You could see open air Karaoke sessions, people doing line dancing, playing badminton etc... The teahouse in this park is very good for whiling away time.

Our guide brought us here because she said it was a "happy park". Well I had a big smile on my face all the time. It was just great to see something that wasn't put on for tourists - just local people enjoying themselves. The various singing and dancing groups just feet apart sends out a cacophony so don't expect... More

large park, that is fully utilized by locals. swinging, dancing, arts and culture. park can be very loud, as there are competing blasts of music throughout. local treats are available (I didn't try the Sichuan style braised rabbit heads). people are friendly, and park is quite clean..

Considering its location, just outside busy city streets, this park is a wonderful stroll before dinner time, or after an early dinner. People as usual are doing their dancing, tai chi, or playing badminton. There are lots of little benches and various walk ways, and there are bathrooms too. It's not too big but there's a little pond also that... More

As an expat living in China, I have seen the non-tourist culture areas and this is one of them! Go on a weekend day, see the groups singing and performing just for the joy of it. See musicians, children playing, and elderly smiling while listening to performances. Walk around, take pictures, allow your picture to be taken, sit and smile... More
