We went to this park on a Saturday, expecting tons of people, and, yet, it was lovely and not so crowded!
The entrance is free, but you do need to pay for parking if you come with a car.
It was entertainingly good to walk around the park; many locals were dancing, singing, playing chess, some even feeding pigeons and fishing in the lake.
The view is so pretty and scenic! I'm sure in the summer, the lake will be beautiful with so many lotus flowers growing there. We only got to see the lotus leaves, since we came in Autumn, but it's still so pretty to see the lake full of lotus! You can get a ride on a boat in the lotus lake (rowed by man power, just like in Venice, but with many more passengers) for RMB20 per adult (Sept 2014). Or, you can rent your own boat and ride it yourself, but in a different lake, if you prefer the fun part.
The park also has a special part dedicated for rides, games and fun stuffs for kids and adults, like a county fair. There's even a place, where you can fish little fish and bring them home, fun activity for kids and adults. We were particularly fond of the playground that they have there. RMB 30 for the entrance for the kid, parents go free (since we can't really play anything anyway!), your kid can play as long as they like. There are 2 bouncy castles, many slides, balls pool, etc. It's a good place for physical activities for your toddlers & kids, they can climb up and slide down.
Beware that this is an outdoor playground, so, it's not really ideal when it rains or it's very cold.
