This review isn’t about the park itself but the zoo within the park.
DONT NOT GO! The zoo was absolutely disgraceful! The cages for the animals were so small. Lions and cheetahs in the smallest of rooms. No room for them to wander, only the...More
I was in Shantou for 6 days. I found Shantou a walkabout place and I visited most of the parks and museums in the city including this Zhongshan Park.
There are so many Zhongshan Parks in China. This trip I visited the Zhongshan Park in...More
Amaze park was pretty crowded with locals..young n old.

Failed to enter Forbidden City because dis not buy tickets in advance. They sell only 80,000 tix per day ! Went to visit Zhong shan Park instead for ¥3 ticket. Nice gardens and altars of rice and grain. statute of Sun Yat Sen facing the...More
It is worthwhile expending 2-3 hours promenading in this park taking photographs with it as backdrop.
Have a seat at a sheltered area enjoying the breeze,whilst listening to the rustling of leaves and chirping of birds. Rather relaxing indeed.
The Park has a wide range of spaces for people to do different things - felt like there were opportunities for people to sit, to play, to retreat by themselves, to bring their own or buy food ... many different possibilities - one of the...More
A rollerskating rink, a vast children's playground and a 3D theater are but a few unexpected surprises I found, as I progressed on my walk that day.
I enjoyed watching some of the elders play Xiang Qi (chinese chess) while others practiced more intensive activities...More
During my childhood, I spent a short period of time staying in Shantou at my dad's property. One of the garden that I visited was Zhongshan Park. Today, I still find the garden with many interesting attractions. This is a place definitely worth visiting.
Zhongshan Park, adjacent to the old and very crowded (well, it IS China, right?) city center, is a pleasant and quiet get-away. There are paths and avenues winding around a lovely small lake (with paddle boats for rent) through groves of trees and flowering flora....More

Plum blossoms and cherry blossoms (11 Replies)
I will be in Qingdao on April 10 and 11. Will I be able to see these flowers in bloom at that time under normal circumstances - plum blossoms (say in Shimeian) and cherry blossoms in Zhongshan Park? Or I will miss them as I understand plum blossoms normally bloom in March and cherry blossoms in late April?

Sat and Sun are very light. Suntec City, Bugis, Arab Street, Haji Lane, Kampong Glam and Chinatown are fine to visit on the weekends. I'm not sure you have enough time for ArtScience Museum as the last admission is at 6pm. You should probably visit it before GBTB. Are you skipping the free light shows at GBTB and Marina Bay? I suppose you can cover the light shows on other nights after a full day elsewhere.
