As someone who loves Dream of the Red Chamber, I loved this park! It was so interesting to get a better idea of what the locations in the book were like (even if they were really different to how I imagined!) I definitely recommend it if you're a fan of the book and it's a nice place to go even if you're not

On August 1st I visited the garden to see lotus flowers. As the lotus flowers open early in the morning and close by mid-day, we arrived there a few minutes before the ticketing office opened. A few local people who held tickets were also at the gate. As the garden was enclosed by many trees, there was hardly any breeze. So it was still and hot inside the garden. Small lotus flowers were blooming, but most of the large ones were almost finished. It might have been better, if I went there two or three weeks earlier. It’s not comfortable for a wheelchair, as the pavement of the footpath was uneven.

This is a less known (which is a plus) and modern, beautiful garden that provides an escape from the city buzz. Definitely worth it if staying nearby. Theme of the park is based on a famous Romeo and Juliet-style story from the ancient Qing dynasty!!

Fairly far from any nearby metro station. It's a park reconstructed from the details out of the classic Chinese novel "Dream of the Red Chamber". The book stands as 1 of the 4 great books of Chinese literature. This has a lot meaning to the Chinese. Mannequins of the main characters stand within recreated scenes. All the tourists are Chinese; I was the only foreigner. Gate fee is higher than other garden parks. For example Beihai is 10 RMB but the fee here is 40 RMB. The flowers are not in full bloom. I think another week or two. If you're familiar the novel, then you would enjoy.

Came here as part of a tour of the Forbidden City and other parts of Beijing. It is interesting, and with a guide you can understand the gardens and their purpose well. However, I definitely think it would have been better to go to other attractions in the city like the Summer Palace.
