Small Park at a busy intersection
Aug 2019
The Lanxiu garden is a small park at the busy intersection of Youhao South Road, Yang Zi Jiang Road and Lanxiuyuan West Street. It was unfortunately closed for repairs when we visited. The attractive wooden gate is still at the entrance, but there is a green barrier which blocks the entrance to the park. We were disappointed, as we had heard that "chessboard square" was a popular place for locals. The gate seemed to have been recently refurbished and was very colourful, with interesting animal figures at the end of the curved traditional Chinese roof design.

This area is an ideal place to start exploring Urumqi, as there are multiple transportation options. Many buses and taxis pass this area and a BRT bus route is a short walk from the park gate. The BRT bus can be taken 3 stops north to the Childrens Park bus stop, which facilitates entry to the subway system via the Balou Station. Other attractions within walking distance include Red Hill, Peoples Park and Yao Mo Shan. There are many shops and food and beverage options. It is a busy intersection, and you will probably have to use the underground passageways to get to the gate. There are many small shops in the underground area which will provide a sample of local culture.

Not a must see- but the squirrels are cool
Sep 2016 • Solo
It has nice little squirrels (much smaller than our grey and red ones, very cute) and is free, and you get off here if you want to go to Hong shan. From below you get a first impression on hong shan itself (i.e. Beautiful little pagoda and otherwise rather overrated 2nd rate theme park).
