Just a small square worth walking through to see some architecture and the locals rollerblading or also going for a stroll. I wouldn't go out of your way to schedule a visit, but it is fairly central so if you're in the area, a small detour will suffice.

This is just a giant statue. There isn't a lot to see. It's definitely a symbol of Dongguan, but don't make a special trip or anything. You might consider hanging around later in the evening to watch the older ladies exercise. Every once in a while special events will be held in the square but unless you speak Chinese there... More

Considering I used to live in DG and walked past this each and every day. It did become part of the background. During the day a brief walkthrough, but when the sun goes down it comes alive with activity. Families stroll through here play, and roller blade and generally have a good time.

will suffice. An evening stroll requires a bit longer. Whilst there is modern Chinese style architecture to view, there are far better places in DG to see and genuinely be inspired.

It's a very big open area where you'll also find Dongguan Exhibition Center & Dongguan Conference Hall. The Central Square was empty during the hot August day but it becomes alive at night with families, strollers, joggers, skaters, bikers, kite flyers, etc. You'll find a lot of restaurants and shops towards Hongfu West Rd.

Used to walk around this location with my wife a lot after dinner. We would walk to the square after getting dinner somewhere close by, and there are always couples, families, and kids running around. The atmosphere is good but it can get noisy from the traffic on Hongfu West Road. There's a library and park across the street, and... More
