  • Definitely I will revisit here again. I have a family photo with parents when I was infant. Standing in front of a "Long" dragon made of grass. Now 30 years passed, my parents with white hair and getting old. I am the age of them in the photo. We have lived oversea since 2 decades from China. I hope one day, my child and my parents can take a new photo.
  • In early winter, it had a very pleasant atmosphere despite the rain & cold. Place was full of history
  • A beautiful park that is enjoyable both when it is busy and when few people are there.
  • A beautiful little park if you need to relax.
  • The view is really nice.
