More than just a park

This place is noted for its famous pavilion. But this place also has lovely decorations, sculptures and flowers. There are buses going here and the admission fee is inexpensive.

This place is famous for the long couplet at the entrance to the Daguan Pavilion. The couplet has no punctuation marks which makes it not so easy to comprehend if you do not have someone of good Chinese standard to read it and explain it. We were there in late November and all the lotus leaves in the pond have... More

Really traditional Chinese gardens always try to mimic the nature. There are always "mountains" and "lakes" (山水) in additional to the main attraction: the plants. The mountains can be as symbolic as a 6 inch tall mountain shape rock or a tiny hill that you can climb on. The lakes can be as symbolic as a large bowl of water... More

Daguan Yuan Park is famous for the longest Duilian in China. It is built by Dian Lake, and can provide a nice paranormal view of this big inner land lake.

This is a traditional Chinese style Park, with a big pond, plenty of nice big trees and water lilies, gorgeous arch bridges, gazebo and lots of potted seasonal flowers on display. What makes this park famous is the long couplet of 180 characters of Chinese calligraphy carved into the door posts of the pavilion by the Qing dynasty scholar Sun... More

This is a ticketed park with a small ferris wheel and many areas under reconstruction now. Main attraction is the Daguan Pavilion which is known for the longest couplet written by a famous Qing Dynasty poet. Other than that, enjoy the scenery.

The garden is fairly big with a supposedly large pond/lake, unfortunately, one side of the lake was totally dried up and we only get to see the rare side of the bottom of the lake while the other side is still filled with water.. The garden is pay per entry, since the pond is dry up, there isn't much activities,... More

Daguanlou park is a very beautiful lakeside park on the lakefront of Dianchi Lake. It is only few kms from downtown. Entrance fee is 20 yuan. There is a pavilion named Daguanlou standing in the park. Also beautiful lake with the migrated seagulls which u could see only in winter. If u walk further, u could see amusement park.

This is one of the best lakeside parks I came across in China. It combined the awesome natural landscape scenery with children amusement entertainment. On one corner of the park, not far from the entrance, the amusement park occupied a substantial area with its large slide playground, carton gardens, mini-zoo, games machines, toy trains, cars, pirate houses. The amusement park... More
