Tranquil, beautiful, a must do activity. I liked the surroundings. It is a good place to bring food and have a picnic there.

Everyhting is in the title. We go out of the underground at XuanWu station and went to the train station by feet along the lake, it is a bit long but very nice. Lotus flower were open in the begining of July.

This is a lovely park that compliments Xuanwu very much.
While the lake's water are far from being clear, the trees along the beautiful causeways and the blooming flowers around the lake are simply stunning.
We had a nice 2-hour walk on the beautiful paths surrounding the lake (and the ones that lead to its islands, too).
Highly recommended, especially around April, when everything is blooming.

It's not going to list as one of the highlights of your trip and may not even leap out at you as a particularly memorable spot, but Xuanwu Park and the lake it surrounds are a pleasant reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city.

It's often over-crowded, which makes islands of serenity hard to come by, but there's space enough for those wanting to hunt. Plenty of snacks, drinks, and souvenirs to be bought, boat rides to be had, and pretty little sideshows to check out.

Definitely worth a visit on an extended visit to Nanjing, and particularly nice on summer nights when the lights are out and the kites are flying.
