Constructed in 1984, this is a magnificent example of a classical Chinese landscaped garden featuring elaborate rockeries, lotus ponds, covered walkways and pavilions.

This is a less known (which is a plus) and modern, beautiful garden that provides an escape from the city buzz. Definitely worth it if staying nearby. Theme of the park is based on a famous Romeo and Juliet-style story from the ancient Qing dynasty!!
