Great walking paths, some nice views, and some terrific temples. If you happen to be in the area, this is a good place for a run or a walk, and on a clear day, a climb up the mountain is worth it for the view. The only disappointment is the filthy water in the lakes/ponds.

i often visit here to bike around the lake or just walk or picnic on my he shores, in the evening is best because of the ambiance the lake lends to the surrounding hotels and eateries. This is a place I will definitely visit time and again

I am an American living in Songshan Lake so I spend a lot of time enjoying it's beauty. From the main "business" area near the Hyatt or Aloft Hotels, there is easy access to the lake, where there is a paved path that goes around the lake. On this first section of the path, no bicycles are allowed, so if... More

Early morning walks around the lake are more than invigorating the are also a thing of beauty. We stayed at an apartment nearby and the views of this gorgeous lake we stunning. In an area of high density, this lake is a real oasis of stunning beauty. Looking forward to our return.

A nice getaway from the surrounding bustling China towns. I recommend seeing the entire lake, but would rent a bike given the lake is fairly large.

This is a good place to relax and watch what is going on and many Chinese families come here and enjoy the park and lake but on a public holiday it is manic but still enjoyable and worth a look

This was an 8.5 sq. km lake area. I visited briefly while on a tour with a colleague, and I found the place quite beautiful. It has several pathways for walking, and I could see it as a romantic spot. It is definitely a popular place to visit.

I stayed at the Hyatt Regency hotel by the lake side. From my room, I had a great view of the lake. It is nice to take a walk by the footpath around the lake, but, please don't do it on any Sunday; as you may have the whole city there to accompany you.

After lunch my coworkers and I took a 3 person bike out for a spin around the lake for a few hours - highly recommended you visit if you're in the Dongguan Area!
