We visited in Sept 2019. Really beautiful park with architecture that integrated into the outdoors. Lots of gazebos and sitting areas. DuFu poems are displayed throughout, not all of them are translated. A replica of DuFu's cottage is featured, but there is plenty of other things to see.

It was a pretty place! I am familiar with his poems, so I really wanted to go here. It is a pretty garden with lots of great places to take pictures, but as a solo traveler I was in and out pretty quick. Is this location mandatory, no, but if you have time you can check it out.

Visited DuFu cottage on May 2, 2021. Not as many people as in other tourist sites. Nice park, traditional Chinese park. I wouldn't say the best one I visited in China, still it has the beauty.

The famous Chinese poet lived here for 4 years and wrote over 250 poems during that period.

This is a massive garden with wonderful flora and fauna. There are also small lakes interspersed around the premise. It is nicely landscaped.

Some of his poems are inscribed on stone tablets and mounted on walls around the premise.

Worth a visit if you are willing to pay 50 rmb to see a nice garden.

I was excited to come here because of the pictures but felt underwhelmed. The price of the ticket is 50 RMB and it does not take long to get through the park (about 1.5 hours). The park is very nice and mostly well maintained. The significant buildings are recreations and I feel as though we could not appreciate the area as well as people from the mainland not knowing who Du Fu was and there were no English guides available. We were disappointed with the tower in the park as it was littered with paint chips, sunflower seed shells and cigarette butts.

It is a little out of the way for metro as of October 2020 with Chengdu University of TCM... Station being the closest. We got in and out of the area using Didi with little wait time.

The thatched cottage, well-maintained and beautiful gardens, and exhibitions of sculptures and other works of art are all a treasure of Chengdu, and well worth visiting. I come for a relaxing walk through the grounds on most of my Chengdu visits.

This is a peaceful and beautiful place to go to. We can see a lot of refined houses and strolls along the carefully maintained place. But there is no food or drink being sold here, so either you bring your own packed lunch or just simply cross the opposite of this attraction where there are numerous eateries for your lunch or dinner.

Our tour company and guide said we were going to the Du Fu Thatched Cottage, the home of the "Chinese Shakespeare." Huh? Now home trying to remember where we went, my research tells me Du Fu (712-770) was a great national poet during the Tang Dynasty who lived in a cottage near the site. (This cottage is a restored replica). And, it is Ming Dynasty poet-playwright Tang Xianzu (1550-1616) who Moa started promoting as the "Chinese Shakespeare." Who would have thought?

This place is built to honour one of the great poets in Chinese history. Do join a guided tour if you visit. It helps to provide context to the place. Imagine how Chengdu would have changed since Du Fu's time in the Tang dynasty. I liked the chinese caligraphy exihibition too.
