To get to People's Park, I walk from my hotel up the boulevard to Tianfu Square, then head west for about 15 minutes to the park. As soon as I enter, I see grand plantings and paths.
Paths to wander
Welcome to the teahouse

Outside the teahouses, people are hiking around and boating on the lake.

And, in the open areas of the park, there is dancing and play.

Group sing-a-long and badminton
After watching the groups for a while, I wander over to a quite corner of the park, where a garden has been created for quiet contemplation and enjoyment.
Yet, only a short stroll away from the garden, on the other side of the lake, are amusement park rides, operating, but not full, on this spring weekday.
As I complete my stroll through the park, I also pass patriotic statues and monuments, scattered among relaxing open areas.

I've spend almost a half day wandering through Renmin Park, just enjoying the scenery, the people at play, and the spring weather. This park has everything, it's truly a People's (Renmin) Park!
