nice place in the centre of Jinan

A nice artificial lake in the center of Jinan. Lots of tourists there, even on a cold Sunday morning.

I visited here on my own as it was within walking distance of my hotel. The lake is bigger than I was expecting, I was able to spend a good couple of hours wandering around. I found it a nice space to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There's a section of the lake which you... More

I live and work in Jinan and have been to Daming lake a few times. With the beautiful lotus flowers and the Chinese boats on the lake it's definitely a change of scenery. The best way to experience it is if you go just before sun set and then walk around. Find a place to sit and watch the lights... More

Very relaxing place to visit with family...Very natural and fresh air.... You can spend good time in the weekend. Do not forget to pass by boat.

To us, nothing much. Over sold on all counts. More crowd than beauty to behold. Utterly disappointed.

I'll admit, I'm a little spoiled. I grew up around lakes and similar parks, so have a high standard. This park is not the best I've been to, but it was nice enough that it put a nice sheen on an otherwise disappointing day. Out ticket was included with entrance to the nearby springs and this was the highlight of... More

Its an interesting and pleasant stroll around Da Ming Hu after taking the boat from Baotu Springs. Pleasant and quiet gardens. However exit from the East gate opens onto a bus terminal. Difficult to get a taxi.

This is an absolutely beautiful lake which is well worth a wander around. You can also take a boat ride or do a sort of aquarium activity where you can see what is below the lake (both cost extra). The park is actually open until 10pm in the summer (although the ticket office closes around 6.30pm), but it is worth... More

The lake is surrounded by a park which is really beautiful. There are boating activities and lots of people doing exercise. Also some pensioners singing when I was there. I was lucky and had a clear day in the spring and the plants were beautiful. It would make living in Jinan very pleasant I think.

There are a lot of parks inside the park where you have to pay, but I would advise you to not go into those parks. It is enough to walk in the free areas. Be prepered that it will take a couple of hours to walk around the whole thing.
