China does parks well, They allow citizens to get outdoors, exercise, socialise or just escape a dingy apartment. This park is quite large and has some pleasant walks and nice bridges. In summer a cool breeze comes off the lakes but it does get pretty crowded. I went early in the morning and as I was leaving around 7,30 am people were streaming in. Sadly the monument is being renovated currently so I missed out on my history lesson. As usual there are dancers, tai-chi exponents, musicians and even lake swimmers. Nothing special but very pleasant in general.
