The moment I got into this park, I couldn't stop smiling. I've been to many parks in China, but the park that I remember the most is Chengdu's People's Park (Renmin Park is known also as People's Park and no wonder - there are so many people). The best time to be there is in the afternoon, then there are a lot of Chinese people doing a lot of things. You can really see their culture and happiness when walking around the park:
People dance and sing, watch small performances, play Chinese instruments, play cards, do Tai Chi, do movements with swords and the most beautiful thing, in my opinion: they write down old chinese poetry in calligraphy on the pavement with a huge, sponge brush and water. Afterwards the park keepers can use a water hose to wash the poetry away.
The park is beautiful - there are many trees and there is a small lake in the middle, where you can ride on small boats. There is also a part where they store small, interesting looking trees. And there's a place with chinese fish. And you can find a stand that sells sugar-candies in a very special way: you need to turn a wheel and it stops on a figure of an animal - the figure it stops on will turn into your candy. The seller will make the candy on the spot according to the figure that you got. It's really nice!
Wow! I really really loved People's Park. It's been almost a month since I've seen it, and I still smile when I think about it.
