Great views of hexi and hedong. Lengthy walk to the statue of Mao. Worth walking there then catching the electric bus back. Very nice restaurant called Ju Zhou 1925 just down from bridge well worth eating at. Stylish with good food.

Upon a 6pm arrival, the shuttle carts that take you around the island finishes at 6:30. We were able to take one of the last carts to the statue of Mao, take pictures, and take one of the last carts back to the exit by 6:30 (which would have otherwise supposedly been a 30 min walk). The park grounds were... More

Though it was hot, we enjoyed the shuttle ride through the Orange Island Park. Right in the middle of the city, yet so peaceful and calm. The Chairman Mao sculpture is very impressive. Wish they have the English translation of the poem to appreciate the same better.

It was "very good" for us because there was a festival going on that was quite entertaining....at other times it may just be "average". NIce Buddhist Temple and grounds.

It was nice park, good place to relax and get away from the city life. Very beautiful and green, the water in the river was not the most pretty, but they are trying to clear that up. Good amount of people walking along enjoying the park as well. Nice to see the metro coming in over by it.

I went here during December 2013 with family and a local of the area. The entire park was very beautiful and filled with tangarine/mandarin trees as well as other flora as well as a few ponds making it a very peaceful place for relaxing. The main attraction of the park, of course, is the giant head statue of Chairman Mao... More

My son and daughter - in - law took me here with my wife and granddaughter. What a very pleasant surprise and day out. We arrived early on a bright sunny day in October and took the little train that runs around the island. We stopped and had a pleasant walk to the monument of Chairman Mao, took many many... More

Going there has nothing fun, but watching fireworks which is being hold every statuary evening around eight pm is something you don't wanna miss, about the isle it's getting unpopular and neglect be visitors due to super expensive shuttle bus which takes you to watch what so called mao zi dong head statue!!

Really nothing much about this park that is situated in between the 2 sides of the river. The statue is the only prominent thing you can take photo of. You can take a tram to reach there. Dont walk, its very far.
