An oasis of greenery in the middle of a busy district, Ritan Park (South Gate) offers tranquility and diversions. These 21 hectares (52 acres) of intricately designed landscape center around an altar to the sun god, built in 1530. Join locals in Tai Chi exercises, try your luck angling at the lake, test a rock-climbing wall, or have fun at the children's amusement park. A large, picturesque pond complete with intricately carved stone cliffs, stone bridges, and pagodas provides a relaxing environment away from the traffic and bustle.
