“Nice walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Haven't been inside, but the little park around the pagoda is nice. You have some artists, stalls, you can pik-nik there on a sunny day. But a bit crowded

“Not your average fountain park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

After visiting the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, we headed north in search of some grub. We passed plenty of trinket stalls and found ourselves a place to eat. It got dark after dinner and that's when the good stuff started.
The North Square was all lit up in various colors and the fountains themselves were beautiful. This is the perfect photo op while in Xi'an and, best of all, free. Highly recommended!

“Big project”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

It was field and village before the square was built here. I prefer the original old outfit rather than this modern big project.

“For people watching”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

THis is a big public pavilion next to the Big Goose Pagoda (there is no entrance fee for this area so confused as to why some reviewers have mentioned it). The pagoda is a big tourist atttraction, thus the surrounding area has been developed to accomodate all the tourists. It is a good place for people watching. Ther eis lots of walking space, pools and fountains and reporoductions of traditional buildings that house shops and resteraunts. There are smaller, cheap noodle shops if you go looking in the smaller alleyways near the road overpass.

Not an attraction is itself, but good to wander around if you ar evisiting the Pagoda or the History museum that is 10mins walk down the road.
