  • This park offers an experience that should not let it pass, see Chinese retirees entertaining with traditional activities as singing, playing instruments, dancing, write calligraphy in the soil with water, etc. It is a beautiful park that belonged to a wealthy before the revolution, and that "donated" to the people, hence its name. Visit the morning preferably.

  • Despite its location on major roads, it is a small, beautiful park. The Green and the Park is a nice contrast in the foreground and in the background the entire high rise buildings. Never seen that here you fish goldfish for fun.
