This is a large park in the city with a man-made lake. I went to the monument and prayed for the martyrs. All the cities of China that I have been to have something dedicated to the country’s martyrs. I walked through peaceful treed areas and took a boat ride on the lake. Not many were in the park, as it had been raining for the previous three hours. March tends to be a rainy month in Changsha.

A very nice park for a relaxing walk to enjoy the views and read the memorials to those who died so that others could live in a better place.

As some of you may already know, I am an American that now lives and works here in China. I travel extensively around China but my home is where my wife grew up here in Changsha. We live just north of Martyr's Park and we often come here to unwind. We take a stroll around the parks loop encircling the lake at the center.

During the spring and summer season there is always the local "carnival" were you can ride bumper cars or walk through the haunted house. Popcorn, cotton candy and all kinds of local snacks are available. There even is a McDonalds right in the park. You can also rent a boat for a slow paddle with your sweetheart around the lake.

If you are ever in Hunan Province, and have some time in Changsha, you must visit Marty's Park. It is clean and well maintained. Admission is of course free.

If you would like to know anything more about some of the places my wife and I have visited in China, please feel free to visit my website, http://whyvisitchina.com.

I had been to Martyr's Park in 2009, so I was interested in revisiting it. I enjoyed it both times (see earlier review). This time I spent an afternoon with friends, strolling until we found a place we liked and then playing music and singing for a few hours, so we did not visit the history exhibit but it was evidently open. My biggest impression was how many different areas and atmospheres are available here: from walking through tall, shady trees and sitting quietly in a pavilion, to boat rides on the lake, roller-skating and "extreme" amusement park rides. (Some of the kiddie rides looked very outdated and had no customers.) The large size of the park made it seem uncrowded, even though this was one of the first sunny Saturdays in weeks and I'm sure there were lots of visitors. There are several restaurants and snack stands if one is hungry. No admission charge is a nice feature, and decent (for Chinese standards) toilets were convenient enough. Bus transportation is available with a bus stop right across the street from the entrance (see my photo for which lines stop there). Martyr's Park gave us a chance to escape from the city environment for a lovely Saturday afternoon.

Spent an hour or so enjoying this public park, now free as are most of the city's attractions. The central monument was under renovation and unavailable in 8/09, but there was plenty of other things to do. We strolled the paths down to the large man-made lake in the center and took a boat ride. (You can choose between the small, slower poled boats, short or long ride, or a larger powered craft which circled the lake in about twenty minutes, which we chose.) Then we walked back up, past fishing ponds and zoological exhibits and through the carnival. Although we chose not to ride any rides or play games, it was thrilling to watch the bungee ride in which a two-person capsule is catapulted skyward by an attached huge rubber band. There is lots of green space here and plenty to do for a low-key, pleasant family or individual outing.

This place early in the mornings is amazing!
When we go back to our home in Changsha from Melbourne, my wife goes here at 6am every morning for Tai Chi .
The grounds are huge and very well kept! well done to the gorundsmen and gorundswomen.
The (I call it a small museum) is definitely worth looking at!
The trees and shrubs are beautiful. I like it in the autumn and winter then spring. the colours sre fabulous!
There is a young lady who takes your photo's if you like with the monument behind you. Worth having taken if it is nice and clear.
The ice creams are expensive but delicious!
Tai Chi seems to go on early in the mornings with so many people attending. it is great to see it and the music is really good.
I usually take a book, flask and sit there reading and watching.

Ah! Peace and Quiet!

If the weather is good, a great Saturday experience to just wander the park. Everyone is out in their finest and the music and dancing is a pleasure to see.

This is a beautiful park with a mix of paths to walk along, a small carnival with rides and games, small vendors through out, and a large lake with paddle boats and some more traditional Chinese boats. There is a nice walkway to a couple of small islands that has that traditional Chinese look. And a full McDonalds by the lake if you get hungry. This is a lovely park, relatively large in size and great if you want a relaxing day and want to feel like you are out of the city. We took our 4 year old and 1 year old here and they had a blast at the carnival rides and walking over the lake. We had the 1 yo in a carrier, a stroller would have worked fine, just a little inconvenient for the walkway over the water but totally doable. There are small busses you can pay to ride around if you choose. There are even more things to do here, but this review is long enough.

This is a huge park, including an impressive lake for rowing or riding the ferries. of particular interest to this westerner was the large number of 'dance classes' that are conducted throughout the park. you have to see this to believe it, but large numbers of mainly middle aged Chinese people are dancing together. There might be a salsa class next to a modern, aerobic workout class, with the music competing in your ears. a sight to see!
