People’s Park is a beautiful Chinese park in the centre of Chengdu that caters for all ages from the young to the old. As you enter from the busy road you realise quickly this is a relaxing, calming place to spend an hour or two meandering through the shaded network of pathways, small ponds, bridges and so on.
Inside the park (free to enter) you can find a sculpture and bonsai section, amusement park for kids, buildings with Chinese architecture and well maintained trees, plants and flowers. You can also hire electric or paddle boats on the central small lake with island and two bridges.
There are lots of places to stop, sit and enjoy the views, maybe eat a picnic or drink tea. A superb location full of culture, shaded from the heat.
