Chengdu Renmin Park
"Renmin Gongyuan", as it is called by the Chinese, is a place where "young" and "old" can gather together to enjoy the charming and typical "Chinese park" atmosphere. It is located in the southwest of the city and offers a great opportunity to relax, watch people working out different types of martial arts or simply to wander around taking in the spirit of the environment. The park includes a bonsai garden, a children’s funfair and a Monument to the Martyrs, all of which are located around a lake where hiring pedal boats is possible. The nearby teahouse is a popular place for locals and visitors alike to enjoy traditional cup of teas, chat to each other and to spend the day in an overall pleasant atmosphere.
