I went with my wife and a friend yesterday, September 25th, 2021. We took a Didi all the way there we live in Southern Pudong so this attraction was not too far from us but it still took 90 minutes to get there. There is a bus station on the main road outside the park but I would not getting there on public transport would not be easy. When it was time for us to leave it was not easy to catch a Didi, I had to use the app to find a taxi.
After passing the ticket-office there is a large space that has a huge old tree at the centre, to the right there is a long building, which contains very little but there is one small shop selling snacks, beverages and toys. To the right of that shop is the entrance to the park itself. Upon entering you are greeted with a stunning scene; a raised, stone walk-way over water with many old bridges and quaint building. It really is beautiful. As with this type of “garden” the route you take can be confusing, there is not a single path to follow, every so often there will be a crossroads or T-junction which, could lead you back to where you just came from. This can be frustrating if you do not pay attention to the choice of route but I think this also adds to the experience, the park would be busier and have less character if there was one single pathway to follow.
Behind the long open building that contains five or six, enormous decorative drums is a part of the park that is not as nice, in my opinion. This area is styled like a modern day park with lawns and some flowerbeds although there was one small area which was densely populated with some orange flowers which the butterflies were loving, so that is one reason to see the whole park.
We walked around for about 2 hours, the weather was great, more than warm but not too hot with a blue sky that really added to the beauty of the environment. Several electricity pylons, dominate the skyline, which does take away from the experience, but I managed to edit those out of some of my photos and overall it did not ruin our experience.
