Aug 2016, very crowded at the time I was there walking in the park. There's a huge lake in the middle of the park, it's the district of the Lychees)) Beautiful trees were there all 4 seasons due to the tropical weather of the south, just plain awesome.

We got here just after dusk and walked the pathways across and between lakes in the fading light . Surprisingly tranquil given its proximity to a major road. Good find!

We saw this attraction as part of a classic day tour. The tour was excellent with our guide, Mark serving as an outstanding guide. What we loved was the way we were able to glimpse how ordinary Chinese people lived, playing with shuttlecocks, singing, exercising and indeed eating. This was by no means just a tour of historical attractions though... More

This park is part of Lychee Bay. There's a review for Lychee Bay Scenic Area. It's actually a lot of small parks, temples and gardens rolled into one. You can walk for hours. Go during the week to see the elderly Chinese enjoying themselves. There are a lot of old comrades living in what was the site of the first... More

On Some days museum is free, but if you are a tourist and visiting, the museum includes viewing of local living quarters and ticket includes a history of that area, with interesting information. If you prefer just to walk around the canals, thats fine too... Nice place (except avoid during June, July, August, as it is at its hottest). You... More

It is connected to Litchi (Lychee) Bay. It is a manmade lake to prevent flooding in the past and it still helps the drainage process nowadays. It is a very nice lake too. You'll find lots of senior residents in the park exercising or dancing. Feel the local's daily life.

Liwan Lake Park is very popular place for the local residents. They do Tai Chi in the morning and have a relaxing stroll in the evening. After a great lunch at Pan Xi Restaurant, my friends took us there to show us around. The park is elegant with beautiful scenery, bridges and lots of trees. I like banyan trees the... More

We stumbled on this after wandering out of a dim sum restaurant in the morning. We walked along the canal and heard Cantonese opera music in the distance. We followed it and found an outdoor opera performance in the park. After the performance ended, we spent most of the rest of the day wandering around this area, into museums and... More

Very popular for both locals and tourists. A lot of restaurants for all budgets. Inside park is very well maintained. Can see the park in one hour if you are rush but can easily spend whole daytime as there are lot of seating for picnic or lots of venders and restaurants inside and right outside the park. There are many... More
