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

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.

The local translation of its name is Tangerine Island, for the fruit trees planted there. It is somewhat derilict at present as construction work for the new subway is occupying a central spot.

I went there in a windy cold day. I arrived there late afternoon. There was no English sign there to explain what is what. I decided to go on foot to discover this park. After some minutes I found that it is bigger than I can discover it in a very cold day. There were some electric vans full of... More

Had a great day here in September 2012, fantastic day to enjoy the park, beautiful scenery, just a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon. The fire work display on a Saturday night just fantastic.

The island in the middle of the Xiang river is called orange island because there are plenty of orange trees growing there.
