Nice park for the family
Aug 2018 • Family
We've been here a few times and thought I'd write a review this time

We parked the car for 3RMB on the west side of the park (bargain) before hiring a 5 seater bike (100RMB deposit, 70RMB refunded for an hour's hire) to head to the kid's areas on the east side of the park. The kids loved it and saved their energy (its a long walk/big park) for the entertainment and nagging for ice-cream... A reasonable amount of entertainment for the kids at fair prices with a few stalls for snacks

Took a leisurely loop back along the waterfront taking us up to the hour mark

Whilst it wasnt overly sunny today, there is plenty of shade

Hire a family bike and ride around
Mar 2018 • Family
We went on a went day but still enjoyed the park. Hiring a family bike or a small electric buggy is an option here and great for the kids.

Large park on the water
Mar 2017 • Couples
This park was across the street from our hotel, so, of course, we had to visit it.

They have children's amusement rides near the entrance. Most of the rest of the park is just greenspace - that is, it's a park. Not too exiting, but nice for a "walk in the park".

The highlight was getting to the waterfront area.

Nice park
Dec 2016 • Business
This is a very popular park with families. There are amusement rides for the kids, and giant transformer robots the kids can sit in and shoot pretend laser beams from. There are many food stalls, and several bars that open in the afternoon and stay open late. There are many walking trails, and you can walk to the ocean easily. There is a bridge at one end of the park where youcan watch men fishing, and if you cross the bridge there is a great little pedestrain-only section with traditional looking buildings selling incense made from mahogany and other woods, local shell jewelry, and other souvenirs. There are a few nice restaurants to eat in as well.

Park with ocean view
Feb 2016 • Couples
Nice large park with plenty of greenery to enjoy while strolling along the park paths or along the coast with a view of the ocean. Can rent a bike to ride if desired (single, double or even 4 wheels if 4 -6 people). FYI - During Chinese New Year (and maybe other holidays) the bike rental price nearly doubles.

Typical Chinese Park
Jan 2016 • Couples
I personally do not find Haikou a very touristy place. Wanly Park (or Evergreen Park) never impresses me as an extraordinarily or spectacularly tourist attraction. I don't see any wow factor in this park. To me, it is just another Botanical Garden like that in Singapore but I don't think it has that wide eco-diversity of exotic tropical flora and fauna as that in the Singapore Botanical Garden.

Nevertheless, I find this park of great greenery, a park of well manicured landscape and a cool place for some reflection and relaxation. It is remotely away from the bustling streets of motorcycles and vehicles that horn incessantly and away from the dust and polluted atmosphere of the central district.

There are many benches and seats around the park. While my wife took out her hand phone to watch her Hong Kong drama, I strolled around to explore the park. I like the tranquil and quiet ambience in this park. I watched a group of `aunties' practicing their dance at one corner of the field. The pulsating music and their graceful dance broke the silence atmosphere and draw much attention from the park visitors and the female lead instructor was so patient to guide the steps of the enthusiastic amateurs.

One unique characteristic of most parks in China is that they are filled with many mass activities - dances, orchestra performances, singing, etc. These healthy entertainment group activities are good avenues for the aged to gather and spend their time fruitfully. It gives me an impression that the participants were self-motivated and the activities were spontaneously organized with little interference from the authority. Well, in Singapore, the loud music probably received complaints for noise pollution.

There are few sculptures studded around the park. Along the walkway, there were statues of some overseas Chinese philanthropists who returned to Hainan to contribute actively to the `rebuilding of the motherland'. I have much respect for philanthropist like Tan Kah Kee who donated generously towards the construction of universities and schools in China.

There is a Children playground and entertainment corner near one of the entrances of the Park. There are shooting galleries, dart board games and entertainment machines for the children to enjoy themselves. The Park is also a very good spacious ground to fly kites and I saw parents enjoying this hobby with their children. This was unique as our Botanical Garden would not have such a spacious area for kite flying.

There is also an eating corner near the children playground and I ordered some Hainan's specialty dishes to try. The food is wonderful. My wife like the Hainan noodles. I also like the unique artistic decoration of one or two of the stalls here.

The picturesque flora decorations outside two of the entrances of the Park were impressive. There is also a row of flora shops outside the entrances of the Park. The flowers sold were uniquely beautiful especially in such winter times.

Nothing touristy, a typical Chinese Park but there is much greenery and fresh air. The admission is free and there are direct public bus that stop right at the entrance of the Park.

Evening Walk
Sep 2014 • Business
We went back in September 2010 for some buysiness. In the mean time of doing business, we did a bit of sightseeing and decided to walk through the park. It is huge, and even though we did not manage to have a look at everything, we managed to see quite a lot. The arched bridge was spectacular, and the views of both the city and the sea were excellent.

Too big for a city Park
Jan 2012 • Business
The place is enormous and it's located in the middle of the city, several food stalls are available within the park. there aren't much to see in the park, since the park itself it's dedicated for Haikou's residence activity (sports and resting).
