It is not a big park. However, the view setting-out and arrangement is just breathtaking. With or without tulip exhibition, it is definitely worth to visit.

This is a very attractive park across the road from West Lake. It blends into the general gardens that stretch all the way around the lake. It's not great with a stroller because of the knobbly cobble stones and steps, but you can avoid those parts.

Entering Prince Bay Park, we are in the ocean of flowers. Hundreds of thousands flowers are smiling at us. The fragrance of flowers makes us intoxicated. I’m fond of taking photos, these flowers makes me really crazy. I take many group photos with the flowers, I’m dreaming of becoming a flower too. Moreover, it is an excellent place to date... More

If you want to experience Europe or Switzerland then you can visit Taiziwan/Prince Bay park during Spring (march/april). The garden will be filled with so many varieties and colorful Tulips. I saw so many Tulips first time in my life. Only disadvantage is like other tourist places in China this will also be damn crowded with so many people that... More

This park is near the west lake and famous for planting tulipa. Except that, there are not much special. The best time to visit is April, or you will not see tulipa. But in April, there are full of tourists.

It was a grand tulip festival at the park when I was there. So many people and so many flowers. The park itself is ok to check out but lack of charms compared to the West Lake not far away.

The Prince Bay Park is really something quite special--a clean, very well designed and superbly gardened part along a magnificent stretch of West Lake. I walked through the Park from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning and had a walking and nature experience as good as any I have had in Europe or Japan, and better than... More

Unexpected such beautiful blossoms of various kind of flower in this park. This park is quite big and you need to take at least half day to visit every part of it. You can find blossom of sakura, tulip & others....... Also, the location is very convenient & just next to West Lake. Don't miss it if you visit West... More

The place is beautiful in all seasons! Granted! MAJOR TIP!!!: As you find your way to the section of the park adjoining the hill, where there is also a waterfall I believe (runs dry mostly during summers), find a trail to climb the adjoining hill. The best views of the city can be seen from up there!! The trek is... More
