Many people come to Harbin and go to Sun Island for the Ice and Snow festival. Which are an ABSOLUTE must see. However, I feel Zhaolin Park is a nice hidden gem in Harbin, sort of. I would say Zhaolin Park is the smaller and lite versions of the Ice and Snow festivals and is wonderful if you can't make it for the whole day at Sun Island or if maybe you would just prefer something smaller and not something so grand like the ice and snow festival on Sun Island. Even if you go to the main attractions, I still think this is a great spot to visit. Especially if you're around town. I'm sure even during the warmer months this park is lovely to come visit. However, I've only been here for the ice festival and it was quite gorgeous.

Great for a family hangout, date, night out with friends.

PROS
-Smaller scale version of ice and snow show for those who may be too overwhelmed by the bigger shows
-In the central location
small and big enough to pretty much see everything in one go

CONS

-Really no cons. Its not on the scale of the Ice and snow festival on Sun Island but its not a bad thing either.

We went during the day because of other planned activites at night. Small park with mid sized ice sculptures and a little river that had frozen and small children were playing on it. Short walk from Central street. Proabably dont need to see this if you see the Ice festival.

Zhaolin Park (兆麟公园) The Ice Lantern Garden Party is spectacular at night. This is just a couple blocks to the east of the main Zhongyang Dajie (中央大街). The ice sculptures here include international contest entries. Closing time is 10pm. It can easily take two to three hours to see everything in this spectacle. The ground can be icy and slippery. Traction devices can be quite useful for walking on ice stairways, etc. There are a number of small ice slides. There are many fair rides like a ferris wheel available for fees. Small huts are present with snacks and drinks. Many aggressive hawkers are present, selling trinkets, tours, photos, food, etc. January 2008 regular admission is 55RMB.

Visited here at night during the ice festival and saw some truly excellent ice sculptures. There were people trying to sell tickets outside and we bought one at a discount on the gate price; a tad risky but we had a Chinese speaker who confirmed they were genuine with the gate staff before we purchased. Anyway, once inside the park there are loads of sculptures, including competition sculptures, lit up with fluorescent lights and many of which can be walked through. We spent over an hour here and found it very enjoyable and were very impressed with the sculptures.

Nice addition to the main attractions of the Ice Festival & the Snow Festival, if you are going to Harbin in the future & want advice on what order to do things in, I would do this in the early evening of your first day if you arrive in the afternoon, after visiting the park there are lots of good restaurants to eat at. If you arrive in the morning, do the Siberian Tiger Park first, then this park & save the Snow & Ice festivals for the next day. Highlights of the park are the lanterns down the main walkway, the giant ice piano you can play on (but you won't get much of a tune as it was crowded) & the ice slide (which bizarrely they give away free ice lolly's with your slide fee), the ice sculptures are impressive if you have not been to the other parks already & there are cut outs in the ice where you can do silly poses, but remember to wear good boots with grip soles, we saw several people slip & fall over, you are after all walking on snow & ice!... Last point, all the attractions cost money, this park is 200RMB (about £20 or $30), so if you are on a tight budget, save your money & go to the other parks, but our view was, we were only going once, so wanted to do it all!!..

We visited there in January during ice festival. Disney made special designs and buildings inside the park. It's one of must see places in Harbin. Also, you can enjoy some winter games and skying.

This park is insane! There are a couple of slides where you could literally kill yourself. No regulations, just go for it! I love China. There might be a guy who tries to stop you, but I knocked him headfirst and then slid into the fence wall.

It's really awesome. Go there, have fun, wear a helmet it you're scared.

Although the area is much smaller , the lights and sculptures are just as spectacular as at the bigger site.

Totally nothing to do with the Sun Island Ice Festival. Easy accessed from the city center. It becomes a magic area around 16:30 (late Jan) when they turn on the lights. Very very photogenic at dusk. Still a challenge with so many people to try and use a tripod. Not cheap but worth the price.
