We've visited this park---hours each visit---a half dozen or so times and feel like we've only just scratched the surface. The place is huge. HUGE. Over 700 acres huge. It is said to be the largest urban park in Asia.
There is an amusement park that includes a roller coaster (I'm way too chicken to try it) and loads of other rides, plenty of lakes and places to rent boats--peddle boats, batter engine boats, small boats, huge boats, 6 or 8 person biking trolley-things, mini-electric cars, a science museum (we've not yet been), and a giant sandy beach and pools. The latter are over-priced but clean, have Hainan sand, and offer a lovely way to spend a sunny day.
Each side of the park has several entrances that offer different conveniences. We've only been in on the South and West Gates and there are at least 4 on the West side alone. #1 may not go anywhere though. We've not tried it but some friends said it is land locked. #2 is tucked inside the parking lot of a giant market building and hard to find, #3 is our usual entrance and is near a great fountain, lots of places to set down a picnic blanket, trees and grassy areas, #4 is up by the big Solana mall.
We discovered today that the little electric carts that take folks around the park and cost 10 kuai a head, can be summoned by calling the number on the big poster at the entrance. Before we just thought we had to get lucky to find one. It definitely increases one's ability to explore the ginormous park if you can get a ride to another area.
Today we visited the sandy beach pool play area for the first time. It had a separate entrance fee that was absurdly high (120 each person, even a kid) but we did it anyway since we were meeting friends there. The pools seemed clean and the kids play pool with all the slides and structures was fun. They could use some lounge chairs and more umbrellas. The few tables were nearly all taken and we felt lucky to find one off to the side. Today the temps were up to 38 or so. A good day for a nice clean pool.
