Stalin Park is an esplanade by the Songhua River where many local folks like to have their morning and afternoon strolls or where they just meet and chat. It is a place you can relax and watch some local customs and lifestyles, such as the practicing of writing on floor with water brush. The Harbin Flood Control Monument is also located here. The Zhongyang Pedestrian Central Street is just across the road.
I recommend visiting the above mentioned 3 places in 1 trip which will likely take approximately 3 hours. You can start at the Stalin Park, view the Flood Control Monument and walk down the Zhongyang Pedestrian Central Street, in that order.

We went, looking forward to a scenic walk over a pretty, frozen river, only to be sorely disappointed. The iced-over river was gray and covered in slush. We also saw ashes and other remnants of fires that the locals must have started to stay warm on the ice. Local Harbiners have turned the river into a tourist trap, with chairs that you can rent to slide over the ice, snowmobiles that contribute to the noise pollution and awful scratch marks on an otherwise scenic frozen river and other horrors. It was a less than pleasant experience to say the least.

We stumbled onto this fun park located on the frozen river near the flood control/Stalin park, having walked to the end of the pedestrian street and having a look over the river.

The range of ice skating, ice sled chairs, ice bikes was great fun to be a part of, and I am sure that many childhood memories of local tourists are also made here. Had a great communal feel to the place.

On another visit (on the banks) we also got involved in a congo line stretching shuffle exercise with some oldies, all to funky music.

Our most enjoyable activity in Harbin.

Lots of fun activities here for all ages, ranging from ice skating and spinning tops, to hovercraft rides and big ice slides.

Be sure to dress warmly, as the river's banks channel the wind along the frozen river. Grippy shoes are also essential, as the ice surface is extremely slippery.

Not much to see here, no statue or any kind of reference to Stalin as far as I could see. Plenty of ice slides and other activities on the frozen river, and it's quieter here than at the flood monument up the road. But you don't need to make a special visit
