Ritan Park is not to be missed - very tranquil - I would recommend going in the evening to experience the many activities that take place in the park - ball room dancing, meditation etc.

this is a nice park to just come in and sit down in the coolness and watch the passing people traffic. There is sometimes a music group practising in the park so you can get an ice cream and sit down and listen.

This place is nice and quite all local families people were doing tai chi and invited us to join in. The lake and flowers make for a peaceful walk. There is even a rock wall to climb on.
