Besides the glorious history of family Liang, the garden and the residence itself carries great interest. It’s very well preserved and renovated, given its city center location.

This place is so close to the city centre that it would be a real shame to miss it!The park is somewhat typical to other Chinese 'parks' with pavilions, water features,bridges and old buildings but what makes it more interesting is the sheer collection of memorabilia linked with Ip Man, the most famous martial arts master who trained Bruce Lee, amongst many others.
The park reminds me of another magnificent park in Guangdong, the Baoma garden in Guangzhou, similar project but on a bigger scale.
Go and relax on hot, humid days. The entry fee is only 20 yuan.

Calm, insulated from sound, well maintained.

Quite average. Has small pavilions, a Chinese garden, pond etc. For a first time traveller to China, its worth visiting, for an old hand like me, I found it below standards. There are more beautiful places to go to.

I am surprised this attraction isn’t worse ranked. The only redeeming feature is that it was very cheap. The whole place has lots of construction going on so it’s hardly serene or picturesque. Even in the few areas without visible construction, you saw high rise buildings all around. It’s nothing like the other Chinese gardens or Japanese temple gardens that I’ve visited. It might have been a beautiful garden once but certainly not right now. I walked out after 20 minutes. Hopefully it will look better once all the renovations are completed.

Continuing the theme of finding great attractions in Foshan, the Liang Gardens have history, cultural significance and a wonderful serenity within the hustle and bustle of a (smaller) city in China. It is one of the 4 most significant gardens in Quandong Province. Built in the Qing Dynasty the house and gardens demonstrate how the rich and famous lived at that time. No doubt over time many would not have been pleased with this relative opulence being within one family; now that the Liang Gardens are there for all to see the whole community may be pleased that the skill of the builders and landscapers of the time were given the resources to produce such a beautiful place for perpetuity. Besides the structures, water bodies and plants visitors may be amused by some of the notices around the Gardens informing visitors how to get the most enjoyment out of your visit.

We had really a good time and enjoyed the beautiful buildings, the water features and the park overall. Great oasis within a busy city. Nice garden from the Qing Dynasty, similar a garden that we saw in a Taipei suburb. Clear recommendation to spend an hour there.

We took a small taxi from Zumiao to the location, only to find it closed for renovations. Spoke to other tourists standing outside park and they said that they were told it would open the following year.

Three week’s ago we were going here but started out far too late so visited QianDeng Lake instead.

We headed off to the bus stop to get the bus to FeiXiang Park where we took Line 2 south to GongYuanXian where we changed onto Line 1 and header further south to XiLiang to get onto the new GuangFo line. There’s no number for this line just the abbreviation for GuangZhou to Foshan. It’s a bit of hike through XiLing station but eventually we got on a newish train along with hundreds of others heading to KuiQiLu.

Note: A better option would have been to stay on Line 2 to ChangGang, change on to line 8 for a couple of stops to ShaYuan then on to the GuagFo line to Zumiao. This was the return journey despite SWMBO insisting GuangFo didn’t go to ShaYuan. Her Internet map didn’t show the new stretch of line. Obviously Metro lines are built quicker than maps are updated!

At Zumiao station we took Exit A, turned left and walked 100 metres up the road to the bus stop for either the #118 or #128 bus, both go past Liang’s Garden. We took the #118. Look right and after a couple of hundred metres you’ll see the entrance to ‘The Ancestral Temple’ (TA reviewed) which is very popular. It’s only a couple of stops to the Liang Yuan bus stop which is across the road from garden.

Next to the bus stop is a nice ‘biscuit’ shop where SWMBO topped-up her bag with the nibbles she considers essential for any visit to go smoothly. Just as well, as there’s nothing in the garden!

Entrance for SWMBO was 10 Yuan. I, as usual, waved my passport and said ‘Wo lao ren’ and got free entry. There’s a flyer for the park by the entrance, I couldn’t see one in English but the photos are great.

On the right by the entrance is a small Buddhist temple. A small donation in the box will ensure a good visit while a small denomination coin placed onto the gilded palm of the chap on the right will see all your money worries resolved. I hope my 1 Yuan will prove beneficial!

Then it was into the garden. There are buildings to explore, garden paths to stroll along, ponds and lakes to walk around with bridges to cross. There are plenty of places to sit in the shade and take in the views. Many little nooks and crannies to explore. I bet the children had a great time in the garden! There are a few signs in English giving brief details of the buildings.

We walked around the lake passed the West door which to all intents and purposes is the back door. Look over the garden wall and there are still a few ancient buildings in the same style and I guess this is where the Liang’s servants and coolies lived. There are a few small gates (now bricked-up) to give them access as you certainly wouldn’t want the lower-orders using your front door.

Plenty of buildings with much original furniture to admire and even sit on if you’re not too heavy. As ever, look up for the original stuff. The roofs never seem to be touched, a pity as some of the frescos would benefit from a lick of paint.

There’s an exhibition about the Liang family, but it’s all in Chinese. Old Liang was a senior government official (BuCao). However, look closely at the photos for some surprises. An old photo of a harbor of sailing ships revealed a steam tug in their midst. Back end of the Qing dynasty? I was also amazed to see a photo of trams in ‘old’ China, no cars just a solitary tram. Not many dates which was a pity.

There’s an exhibition of Chinese zithers (Guzheng), their music and tools to make them which is a good a use as any for a building. Once again no English and everything behind glass.

There’s one cold-drink machine by the entrance and that’s it for refreshments and refreshingly no tourist tat on sale.

After nearly three hours we were back on the bus. We got off at the stop by the front door of The Ancestral Temple and walked a couple of hundred metres to Exit D of ZuMiao metro station.

I took a day off after a work visit. Read about Liang's Garden many times but wasn't sure about it. I final decided to visit and discovered the pics on the web didn't do the place justice.

Eventhough ticket was only ¥10, the place is a beautifully preserved Lingan style mansion. The architecture was very different from the Suzhou gardens. Each area was beautifully decorated with scholar rocks, antique wooden partitions, screens, bonsai trees and antique furnitures.

The courtyard is lush with greens. It is a serene site in the middle of downtown Foshan. So there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to retreat to after a visit.
