  • This is a really nice park where many regulars converge in the evenings to play and exercise. During the morning and day you will find many people using the space to practice their dancing, martial arts or playing their musical instruments. There is a really nice vibe about this park where people are left to their own devises to do whatever they choose to do. There's a small cafe, some children's activities and a small swimming facility also. There's also a very well used and busy gym area that is used by all the locals. A park that many people have a routine to walk throughout the day.
  • A small oasis in HCMC - it contains the bird park where locals bring their song birds each morning. Also there's a temple, lots of statues and topiaries, a playground, adult exercise equipment. We were there on a Sunday and there were a HEAP of scout troupes doing activities, really cute.
  • Nice park. People doing excises here in the morning and evening. One reviewer mention you have to pay a fee to get in. That is not true. Possibly he is pay for parking. The park looks different in the evening than morning.
  • I love this park for all the exercise and fitness going on. I joined the locals in the open air gym a couple of times and went on a run 8 times around the park in a loop, along with other joggers and walkers. There's always so much going on (aerobics, dance, badminton, marshall arts...). It's a lovely peaceful space too, tall trees, fountains, big enough that the air feels better, and with a super community spirit, what's not to love?
  • Big park! We went here during Tet and it was fantastic. Lots of places to eat, absolutely packed with locals and tourists and though we had to pay to get in, it was cheap and a great way to absorb the atmosphere. It would be totally different during other times of the year and I'm sure just as beautiful.
