A stroll through the park provides great opportunities to observe local families relaxing and to offer a respite from the urban environment

Fabulous for people watching, in the morning or in the afternoon. Regular Chinese doing taichi, singing opera, dancing on Uighur music, playing Mahjong and cards, collecting pebbles, etc. A very nice stroll in the city and absolutely exotic for somebody not acquainted to Chinese parks.
