The Black Dragon Pool Park dates from 1737 and makes for a nice photogenic stroll. The lake has pagodas and bridges and for some of the year it seems to have boats available. There are temples in the park and also the Naxi Dongba Tribal Museum - well worth a visit also.

The Black Dragon Pool provides the water supply for the canal system of the old town. It is famous for its reflection of the 13 peaks of the Yulong Mountain range also. Carp abound in the water and children hire native tribal clothes for photo opportunities.

Allow a minimum of 2 hours if doing the park and museum.

Highlight of this place has to be taking photos of the lake with the snow mountains and pagoda in the background. It evokes the essence of China. A walk from the Old Town of Lijiang, but picturesque along the way, making it enjoyable and relaxing. Definitely recommend coming here.

yes, it's touristy but also less crowded as the rest of the city. Nice museum at the north side entrance on Dongba/Naxi Culture. A must to see also for Chinese tourists.

Although most tourists will stay within the overcrowded LiJiang old town, this park is where one can find tranquillity and beauty just a short walk away. From the main town square, follow the canal north which is a beautiful walk as well. There is an entrance fee which might explain why it has few visitors. There are several bridges and pavilions and the snow capped mountains in the background provide for some beautiful pictures. A quiet place away from the bustle of the main tourist area.
