“Stunning natural beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

It is highly unusual to find a botanical garden, natural springs, koi ponds, and a seal all in the same place, but here you can do just that. The drawback is that the place is very crowded. If the population density were at 50% of actual, this would be a much better experience.

“A charming place to stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

While I think the entry fee for this simple spring (40 rmb - just like the more extensive and majestic Prince Gong's Mansion in Beijing) is steep, Baotu Springs is a lovely place to stroll. There are buildings with small exhibits and occasional performances. A nice place when the weather's good.

I had been here twice. During winter time at Year 2009 and Spring at Year 2012. It is a nice place to relax, go there with some tidbits and enjoy the scenery there.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Crowded with locals, but nothing special or interesting to see. Spring water flows into a pond, water is clear but no splashes.

“Nice, not spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

A really nice park in the center of Jinan with some of the main city Springs. Would recommend a visit, but i think the price was a bit high, since you can see other springs along the river for free. However it does keep the number of visitors down, so you have free space to explore.
