I was thinking Lake Tahoe but no, it's just a large body of water, not too terribly well maintained, so it kind of takes away how nice it could be. I really made an effort to go there, but afterwards, meh

A place to chill in wuhan. definitely worth it to rent a bike. Taje care of moskito as every lake place in china. Better to go in the end of afternoon for avoiding pollution

If you’re staying at the Wanda then it’s worth having an early morning walk and enjoy local people walking fishing and performing Tai Chi. Great trails and easy to undertake

I guess if you live in China in the apartments you see all around you, you would love to come to this park. But to come here on a tour, well, not that great. Perhaps I am just jaded, yes it is somewhat peaceful here...More
