It was quite hazy but great walking around the lake with fresh air, cooling breeze and scenic views was great. Kids had fun imitating the statues and we enjoyed morning strolls for the 2 days we were there.

they really did a nice job making the lake area a nice place for a long walk. Sorry to see so many closed shops around the lake, must be off season. Lake looked cleaner than many other lakes that I have visited in China.

Smelly and green colored lake. Amusement park with Ferris wheel has awful attitude and service. Terrible unless you are a local and don't know any better.

I live very near Jinji Lake and I never tire of it. The West side near Ligongdi has a lovely walking boulevard, which is a great place to go for an evening walk to see the entire lake when it is lit up at night. There are also many restaurants nearby on Ligongdi if you fancy a bite to eat... More

There are so many different activities around the lake. My favourite is just to walk and watch the scenery and the people. Like most city parks, the lake surroundings have been heavily developed, but there are still some quiet places and some of the sculptures are very interesting to see. You are never far from a road so easy to... More

Total walk distance was 18KM. It was a nice walk although i could not find some route close the the lake near... More

After a Busy Week it was Wonderful to Walk around and enjoy a Bottle of Wine on the Lake Shore. Our Visit was on a Saturday and it was not so Crowded and Plenty of Parking.

It's a lake. There's water in it. Walking trail allows for circumnavigation, but unless you are with someone to talk to or enjoy the time with, well, walking around a lake can get a little boring. There are places YOU can stop off at. Ferris wheel park, hotels, restaurants, cafes at moon harbor and li gong di, but, probably, again,... More
