“Very scenic”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Shuilianshan makes a really pleasant afternoon out. There are different routes you can take to reach the top of the mountain. The longer, and more scenic route, took about 2 hours at a leisurely pace and with photo stops. There's a lovely little waterfall, a lake/pebble beach and a huge rock face to admire along the way. When we reached the summit it was unfortunately hazy, so photo opportunities were limited, but on a clear day the view would be stunning. We discovered a short - but very steep - way down which took about 30 minutes, albeit without the scenery along the way. It was busy when we visited (clearly many Chinese families love to spend their weekends outdoors) but it didn't feel to crowded or noisy, and the abundance of litter bins meant the whole park is clean. For a free afternoon out, it's excellent.

“Visiting Shuilianshan Forest Park”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

This is an excellent park with a climb up the mountain that is very tame and acheivable, even for those of us who don't climb mountains, or large hills. The park is very well kept with a place half way up to purchase water, icecream, etc. The view is beautiful from the top and there are lots of photo opportunities along the way. One of my favorite places.

“Shuilianshan yuan”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

Even though I visited this park in the heat of September, I loved it! It is hard to take a bad picture here! The facilities are fairly clean, though some are not. Wear good walking shoes.
