I enter the park through one of the gardens near the People's Square Metro Station, admiring the great floral displays.
The path through the gardens leads me to an interconnected series of ponds, surrounded by small buildings in which people are relaxing, playing games, and socializing.
Ponds leading into each other
Relaxing by the ponds
Past the ponds is a marriage market in which parents have written down and are advertising the good characteristics of their offspring to help find them a spouse/partner.
More gardens and paths
And, a walking trail map and a refreshment kiosk offer physical and culinary delights to the visitors.
Walking for exercise and refreshments
Leaving the park, I look back at the unassuming entrance and think of the wonders hidden inside. What a great place to spend the afternoon!
