“A park that has rides!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Wow.. let me say this. this park is amazingly awesome! free entry and then you get to ride a boat and there's heaps of small rides. I went into the log ride. though it wasn't scary it felt good as it cooled me down for a bit. You can climb a hill ( it isn't a mountain) you can do the usual pensioner's sports like tai chi, singing or just squat down like the locals do.

this is one big park.

“Great to have some Leisure Time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

This place is free. Just like other mountain park in Baiyun District. Nicely kept place with lot of green. We took a small vehicel ride to the top of mountain worth 20 RMB round trip. There is a goat statue in the top of mountain. Also there are few restaurants and gift shops.

“One must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

This is the symbol of Guangzhou, no other place represents.
When you are traveling first time to GZ, the you must visit it.
Though, it still a nice stroll when you have extra time, the government maintain it well.

“History and nature rolled into one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Just visited Yuexiu Park today and the park was so huge, it took up about 3 to 4 hours to cover the area including short rests in between to soak in the views and relax, which anyone should stop to do when they visit this place. The park has full of lush greenery and includes many of Guangzhou's famous historical landmarks, so it's quite worth the visit. Speakers are set up all around the park playing relaxing Chinese music as you stroll along. Getting there is easy, you can take the Guangzhou metro train directly to the main entrance of the park, or if you're visiting Sun Yat Sen Memorial (where the train stops as well), there's an entrance to the park right next to it. I did the latter, so from the memorial and upon entering the park, I just walked and among the landmarks I came across in the park were:
1) The Sun Yat Sen monument - near the entrance next to the memorial, and you have to climb over 100 stairs to get to it (consider it good exercise)
2) The Guangzhou Musuem - Located around the centre of the park. Entry fee is RMB10 to visit this 4 level museum which houses relics from the various Chinese dynasties. I personally did not find it that interesting as the arrangement of items felt pretty random which not much historical timeline explained.
3) The Ancient City Wall - Walk around the musuem to see the wall, it looks cool and pretty ancient
4) The 5 Rams Statue - Behind the museum is a path leading to the statue. Not much ado except that it's a big statue of 5 rams
Yuexiu Park also includes a few waterfalls, some lakes where you can rent a paddle boat and enjoy boating in the lakes, as well as some interesting stone sculptures. There are many other lesser known places to visit within the park itself and even 4 hours was not enough to cover it all. Great place for nature and history lovers.

“An oasis of calm and serenity in the middle of GZ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful Park with lots to see and do.

The 5 ram statue is here, both the original in the museum and the very large concrete one.

The best time to visit is morning time and you will see many people doing outdoor activities.

There are gift shops and a museum and you can pay 20 rmb and be driven around the park. Though we went walking.

The fauna and flora is amazing. We saw the smallest frogs we have ever seen, absolutely loads of them.

There are a couple of boating lakes and the original wall of Guangzhou is amazing to walk along.

We spent 4 hours in the park and had a wonderful time and did not even visit half. Next time we will go on the boats.

Probably the best Park I have ever been in and it's wonderful to see it so well used and enjoyed by the local people of Guangzhou.
