Relatively small inner city park that contains a lot of stuff. Huge swards of bamboo tower over you providing welcome shade on a sunny day. Throughout the park there are numerous statues and formally planted areas as well as tea houses, and a small funfair. No charge to enter but it does close after dark. The lower Riverside pathway is closed during the rainy season due to risk of flooding.

One portion of this park requires an entrance fee, but the rest is free. In the free section, you can rent a row boat, meander beautiful paths, drink tea by the riverside, feed mammoth sized koi, and watch the retirees dancing, spinning tops, or playing chess. The new attraction that just opened in October 2014--A SMALL AMUSEMENT PARK. There are a great selection of rides that, for now, are clean and safe-looking. They also have secure bike parking near the middle park entrance for 1 yuan. It is hard to see because it is covered and walled. It is on the left side of the entrance. Just pay the bike attendant at the cigarette stand after you park your bike. Also, while drinking tea, you will be offered ear cleaning, shoulder massages, and shoe cleanings. They are 20 yuan for each service. I've had all three done multiple times and they've done a GREAT job, but I HIGHLY recommend that you pay the extra 20 yuan to get your own ear cleaning kit or they'll use the ones they use on everybody else. Tea is mostly 20 yuan. You'll get a cup with your choice of tea (I'd suggest oolong or jasmine) and a large thermos of hot water so you can keep your cup refilled. How to order? You'll see a large gray building near all of the tables. Walk inside, order, and pay. Then an attendant will follow you with your tea to the table you select. (I know only a word or two of Chinese, and I've had no difficulty ordering. So don't worry.) This park is truly great place to relax, read, meditate, or just talk to friends. No WIFI that I'm aware of. Enjoy!

We walked along the river and down the alleys to reach the park. Well worth it. It is on the banks of the Jinjiang and has a fascinating group of historic buildings linked to a great poet of old, Xue Tao. This part has a small fee. 20 yuan or as with many historic sites, free for the over 60's. You can enter the buildings and climb up some. English boards give some background. It is set in amongst bamboo which the rest of the Park is famous for. We headed through to it for a sit down and a cup of tea. A great additional experience with the hot water courtesy of two large thermos flasks. Loved the place and caught taxi back to town for a delicious hot pot by the river at Lu Li Ping's. Next to the bridge down from the Dongmem Bridge metro. Staff very patient and helpful. Food and experience great.

Not nearly as large as I had remembered ... but still quite attractive. Free admission, as long as you avoid the so called "historical areas" -- and my recommendation is to avoid.

Located just behind Sichuan University, you will find the park is a nice serene park. Bamboo is all throughout the park. There are actually two parts of the park. The majority of the park is free for walking and enjoying the nature. The other side of the park is only 20rmb to enter. Its a memorial/home of famous ancient poet XueTao. Definitely worth the 20rmb. Inside you will find the beautiful tower, relics from the Qing and Ming Dynasties and more. Its a great afternoon or morning stroll. You can sit by the river and enjoy some tea while watching the locals play mahjong.

Definitely not as exciting as Ren Min Park. It seemed a lot smaller as well.

Lots of bamboo trees it's just a nice walk to look around.

It seems to be a place where a lot of retirees go to. In the middle there was a big cafeteria for elderly people.

Lots of sichuan style food for them.

There are a lot of tea places where you can have tea and play mah jong or dou di zhu.

Further in is the Wang Jiang Pavilion that cost 20 rmb per person to enter. Is it worth it? Well if you want to see everything you might as well. But it's not really necessary. Inside is just a beautiful pavilion and lots of works of bamboo art.

Summary-

Getting in the park is free
Squatter bathrooms bring your own paper.
Inside is a section where you have to pay 20 rmb to see a pavilion and bamboo arts.
Seems like a retiree park less lively than Ren Min Park.

This small park has various things to see, the entrance fee is 20rmb. This includes several historical exhibits of the local trades, a small museum in honor of the Famous female poet Xue Tao. Also a small bamboo exhibit to show the various uses of bamboo over the ages and delicate carved pieces of art in bamboo. The park itself has a wide range of different bamboo species. Then of course the main attraction is the Wangjiang Tower aka Chongli Tower. Here you can see many beautiful sculptures and even a small temple. I also liked that on some days you can hear music in the gardens and just enjoy while wandering. Close to the tower there is a well dedicated to Xue Tao and many of her poems are on display.

A great beautiful park to spend a few hours walking around with lots to see, huge bamboo trees, plenty of sculptures and lots of artwork. We went in the morning and there was not too many people here. Would recommend if you have a few hours spare.

This park has lots of bamboo lined pathways as well as some tea houses adjacent to the river. The tea house we went to had many locals playing mahjong! The local jasmine tea was delightful and while sipping on our tea we were approached by locals to have our ears, cleaned and wax removed! Apparently this is a relaxing therapy, but for me I didn’t want my ear prodded! Also the park had many locals dancing together amongst other relaxing activities! Recommend a visit!

A magical relaxing walk in the local park where locals congregate to paint, dance, kung fu train and families enjoying the day. There are bamboo arbors to walk through taking you through to the only river in Chengdu. This peek at Chinese weekend life was more exciting than the pandas. The locals are happy if you join them in dancing, kung fu or tai chi.
