“smaller but worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is where the Ice festival all started and some people miss this park in the middle of the city but try going early in the morning when there are no crowds and enjoy the serenity as well as the sculptures

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Everyone heads for the big parks for the ice festival, but in Zhaolin Park, there is some of the most beautiful and detailed ice carvings in Harbin. A short stroll from the main 'walking street' of Harbin

“Don't let them tell you it's not good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Our hotel was almost discouraging us to go here. I really don't know why. They kept saying it wasn't as good as the ice festival, and although it wasn't as big and crowded and massive to scale, it was still very pretty and we had the place to ourselves. The park is very mysterious in some ways with pagodas on hills and giant dome bird cages, only one or two had a bird in it, hiding from the cold in the dark. But the lights at night were lovely. You can walk through most of the sculptures and they play this faint music in the the background while you walk. It's very cool. Go at night, give yourself an hour and a half to explore at leisure. It's perfectly safe and lovely and cost about half of the ice festival price. (but don't do it in lieu of the ice fest, do it in addition to)

“Great work”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The ice lantern show in the city centre, where it was originated. Miniature version of the main Ice Show. Go inside the big dome to see the ice sculptures made for the competition - where the participants come from all around the world. Visit this before you visit the main Ice show.

“Worth doing, along with Ice and Snow World and Sun Island snow sculptures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is one of the top 3 places in Harbin where ice and snow sculptures are displayed (Ice and Snow World and the Sun Island Park for snow sculptures are the others). Ideally, it is recommended that people visit at night, as the ice sculptures are lit then. However, due to a taxi issue, we had to visit during the day, and were the only ones there, which was magical.

It takes maybe 1-2 hours to walk around the park. There is an ice castle that children can climb around, as well as a small ice maze around the castle. Additionally, there are lots of ice sculptures in various places throughout the park.

It is open from 2-9:30PM and is CNY 200 per adult, but free for children under 1.4 m in height.
