Warm local ambience
Sep 2019
I passed this park many years ago on the way to the railway station, and saw people exercising in the misty early morning. It has taken over 30 years ago to come back for a closer look.
I don't see a basis for the negativity in another review. Maybe this is not an attraction as such, but it is unbeatable for the experience of seeing local people taking their leisure: groups of elderly ladies doing taiji forms, a guy doing interesting things with a rope and a sabre, to one side another group in song, another playing cards, and beyond them couples waltzing.
Even just standing watching and taking in these sights and sounds, you come away with an overwhelming feeling of warm, relaxed benevolence.

Poor Location

Unfortunately this park is quite dirty. Even though there are lots of people playing cards, dancing and talking, most of its areas are not clean at all - and present poor conditions. Horrible cleaning standards.

Great for exercise and people watching
Sep 2017 • Family
We walked across to this Dongdan Park from our hotel the Inner Mongolian hotel. It's a great park where many locals meet to dance, play games such as shuttlecock and many men playing cards or chess. It's great for people watching. There is also a lot of exercise equipment that our 4 kids (aged 9-17) loved. Wish we'd found it sooner as we would have gone back several times. We were the only foreigners there (Australians).
