About
Known among locals as Shenzhen’s “Central Park” this gorgeous green space provides both respite from the noise of the city and a picture-perfect view of Shenzhen’s skyscrapers in the distance. Don't leave without buying a bag of lychees, which grow on the park’s trees.

Lychee park is one of the oldest parks in Shenzhen, and also one of my favorites.  Located in a central part of Luohu, this is an easy park to get to be metro.  With multiple gates and entrance points, you can start and end this in many places.

As with most larger parks in the city, there is a large body of water that is the central point of the park.  You can take ‘duck shaped’ boats out for a boat ride, or watch the locals do their work on small fishing boats.

There are large areas of greenery, where you can rest, have a picnic or play sports/games, or just put a hammock up between 2 trees and take a nap.

Towards the back of this park there is a much older feel to it, more like a local community park that was extended onto the main Lychee Park

There is lots of striking local architecture in the background of this park, namely the KK100 and the Diwang Building, both iconic and unmistakable.

And at the main entrance there is the Deng Xiaoping portrait.  One of the landmarks of the city.  A testament to one of the heroes of China.

Very beautiful and serene park right in the center of the city. It is large enough to be organized into a walking path across a pond, an arched viewing bridge, a romantic hidden place called couples bridge, and a Chinese garden. You can also rent boats there.

Lychees are ripe for picking. We went to Lychee Park and picked a few kilos of delicious lychees. This is a wonderful time of the year to visit Lychee Park. Very colourful, and lots to see.

Beautiful park, also know as or spelt as Lizhi Park. Many people come for walks, jogging, exercising, and just to get re-energized with the fragrant air.

This happened to me about a year ago:
My girlfriend & I were enjoying a nice picnic one early evening on a grassy patch at Lychee Park, and had just taken some stuff out of her handbag and placed it between us. After about 10 mins, we noticed that the light was fading and as we stood up to leave, her handbag had simply vanished.
My first reaction was of pure astonishment. Although there were many people strolling along the many pathways, I swear that no one had come within 20 metres of where we were sitting.
The guys who fleeced us were pretty good at what they do, because they managed to remove the bag from between us completely unoticed (we were sitting quite close to each other) without coming anywhere near where we were. (I later found out they sometimes resort to using a long pole with a hook at one end). Also none of the numerous people walking along the pathways raised any alarm.
As we made our way out of the park, we noticed that although the park remains open well after dark, night time illumination was next to non-existent. My girlfriend was also becoming a little edgy as she recalls tales of baddies dragging their victims off into dark corners and beating the daylights out of them or kidnapping them in order to extract the PIN numbers for their credit & bank cards.
Once we made the park exit and to somewhere a little brighter, we called the cops - good thing we had our mobiles in our pockets. We waited and waited. Finally after 30 mins one cruised along the pavement in his police car, cigarette dangling from his mouth and with girlfriend in tow, only to inform us that he is not about to leave his girlfriend behind to go inside and scout the area with us, and that there is really nothing much he can (or rather, will) do, and that we'd be much better off making our way home and changing the locks on our front door, because both keys and address were in the booty.
All in all, we lost a camera, cash, bank & credit cards, keys and forms of personal ID, some of which were real hassle to replace.
If you'd like to visit Lychee Park, please don't be completely put off by this review, but rather please make sure you visit during the day and keep an eye out. Enjoy!

Lychee Park is at the center of town and easily accessible from the Metro stop Da Ju Yuan. This Metro stop is the same one as MixC a big malI with everything in it and Carnival Spa (my favorite Spa in Shenzhen) I can't recall the exit but you can ask for "Lychee Yuan Lin" and people will direct you to the right exit.
The park covers what would be 15 square blocks in NYC. You can walk it all in about 4 hours with several photo ops. I did not see any food sellers inside so eat before going. There was a restaurant area but it looked run down and even closed when I went. Inside you will find several things of interest. Taichi classes, Older folks dancing along to lively Chinese pop music (Yuan10/month to join), a children's park with a merry go round, a mini pagoda used as an art exhibit area, lot's and lot's of couples in wedding garb taking photos (on weekends), bridges and footpaths. There is a bee farm that also sells honey. Everyone is local. This is a snapshot of local Shenzhen. The signs are bilingual though so you can sort of get a sense of where you are and whole park maps are around but in Chinese only. Just like in Central Park you have the skyscrapers looming never far away. At the corner exit (near to Mix C) there is a HUGE poster of Deng Xiao Ping the former leader of the communist party and the fellow who decided to give Shenzhen its Special Economic Zone status enabling it to boom. This reverence to him is real and you can't help to enjoy the locals taking photos next to their hero.

Beautiful little gem of a park crammed in the hustle and bustle of the surrounding Grand Theater area. I'd suggest you go at night to see the views of the KK100 building all lit up.

Took a walk in this famous park and was not disappointed - it was bustling with activity! Dancing, singing, kung-fu performers, even an orchestra/band! Extremely interesting! Highly recommend for a cool evening!

What I love about this park is its proximity to the metro and the bus stations. This park is located in the heart of Downtown Louhu. Get off at Grand Theater station Exit B. Walk straight ahead and you will see a huge portrait of Deng Xiaoping across the street. Cross the street through an underground crossing and this will lead you to the park entrance. This is a kind of park where the locals hang out on weekends so expect a crowd especially during holidays. Many people visit the park but it is also huge enough to accommodate everyone.

Things to do: Picnic, boating, water biking, table tennis, outdoor recreational sports, badminton, jogging, hiking, nature trip, Chinese checkers, dancing and etc.

Things to see: lake, Chinese bridge, street performers, Chinese locals dancing as a form of exercise, Chinese violin, artists, trees, view of the KK Tower and the Diwang Mansion

Entrance Fee: FREE

Food: local food stalls selling Chinese sausages, popsicles and chips

Restrooms: YES but toilet paper is not available, so bring your own.
