Location and getting there.
This park is south of the river between the Luoyang bridge and the Peony Bridge.
There are entrances from both ends, although the Peony bridge end seems best.
The Number 77 bus has a stop right outside.
We walk down to the park from the Luoyang Museum, about 1 Km.
(from the front of the museum facing it, walk down the left side towards the parking attendants hut, before you close noticed a diagonal paved footpath and take it, this leads into the backstreets past a novel food garden area, walk straight across about 3 cross roads then turn left, at the main road turn right past the big junction then cross over and head for the bridge, the park entrance is on the right.)

As the park follows the river, but does NOT touch the river banks, (there is a further strip of land that acts as a buffer), their are minimal steps making for a nice walk,

During the Peony season it's has an entrance fee, otherwise it's free.
We were there in Early June, so not a peony flower in sight and the butterfly area was disassembled. However it's still a very pleasant walk, there is a small lake and the lilies were starting to flower.

This park has 1086 Peony types and 100 tree types, so in season it's a riot of colour.

The locals use it out of season for many things. The young boys playing hide and seek / tag, a couple practicing on saxophones, a grandfather training two young lads in combat kung fu, ( really quite frightening seeing the blows land full force).

Once you have meandered your way through the park, avoiding the watering systems designed to soak the unwary you exit onto the Longman Avenue. Grab a cab or turn left and walk over Luoyang Bridge on the footpath / cycle raceway to see the river etc.

Surprised to see so many peonies with so many colors. The park is huge. It was a pleasant walk in the park with flowers in full bloom.

The 2015 Luoyang Peony Festival was held between Apr 5to May 5. We scheduled our arrival at Luoyang on Apr 25 believing that we could meet the peak of the event. However, the warm weather this year came earlier and upon our arrival, we learned that most types of peony had completed blossoming leaving not many were still flowering. To make thing even worse was there was heavy rain and thunder in the night before our visit. So, when we visited, many remaining peony in the open area were withering with only those in the pergola were still blooming and they were unbelievable beautiful! Yes, I was disappointed I missed the blossoming peak but I have put Luoyang Peony Festival in my revisit list. Next time, I would come earlier.

Very big gardens in a central location. There are peonies during April, when they bloom, but don't expect to see any, any other time of the year. It would be a nice park to visit all summer .

My home is not far from this park, its a relaxing walk through the flower gardens. The best time to go is in the spring but they keep up the gardens all year long.
You can rent a 4 person bike and ride around the park.

colorfull ,wide, big park which in April is a massive of all kinds of peony the Chinese national Flower. One can easy spent half a day in the park and wander around the flowers or the the lake. Not sure about the benefit of the park during the non peony seasons.

If you happen to be in Luoyang in April, you must visit one of the peony gardens. We were there in early april and most of the plants were not blooming yet, but even the early ones were so beautiful. It's about 2 km from one end of the garden to the other, one can take a tourist bus that cost 10 yuan. Entrance to the park is 10 yuan.

Whether it is global warming or just the increased amount of concrete in the city the best viewing times for the Peony festival seem to be shrinking according to locals. The garden I visited still had a wonderful array of colors of Peony and the related "sister of Peony" in Mandarin just beginning to come out. While viewing flowers may be too placid for some a discriminating viewer will enjoy the sights and the perfumes of this garden
