Nice place for photo and walk. Relaxing place where one can take a stroll and take picture. View of the lake was fantastic. They do offer boat rides which is quite costly.

The natural lake is many km long, and many km wide! There is so much to do here it isn't possible to include it all. You can rent boats, walk, picnic, visit an aquarium, eat, and much, much more.

Walking through the park is impressive because of the lotos covering big areas of the water, the nicely painted little boats and shadowed walks in the park.

Huge lake which borders Han Jie (shopping area) and Wuhan University. Take a ferry ride. Doesn't cost much with a guide (Mandarin speaking only). Sights are clearer in the day, but the night sights are good for the lights.
