This is a really interesting modern park with unique designs and a futuristic layout! It's a massive cultural center with a science museum, a dance center, concert venues, and the like. There's over 25 buildings, promenades, covered walkways, bridges, and landscaped gardens. I love the...More

The park is a short walk from the metro and well worth the effort if the weather is good. There are lots of open space as well as gardens and walks. There are several restaurants both within the park and immediately outside. I did not...More

There are conflicting reviews about the dragon slide. Some older reviews indicate the dragon slide has been dismantled, but as of our visit in September 2017, the old dragon slide has since been replaced with a new slide. I've attached pictures of the new structure,...More
