Review of King City Park

Attraction details
Reviewed 8 May 2013

I went to the Park on the 1st of May - a public holiday in China . So there were a lot of people but I never felt crowded . I actually went to see the pandas at the zoo , but they have been moved to another location . But I did see some tigers , even a white one . There were some beautiful peonies that was still flowering in the gardens . And there was a huge variety of foods available . Some of them was very strange for me as a South African . A lot of vendors were selling things to the visitors . The park and bathrooms was nice and clean .

I am sure that the park is much nicer in peony season, but in November it is just overgrown and ill-kempt. There are some interesting statues and the monument to the ho-tu and lo-shu is nice if you are interested in early Chinese astronomy and mathematics.

The zoo that forms part of this park is possibly the saddest place I have ever seen. It is mostly empty and thankfully, many of the animals advertised simply are not there. I say thankfully, because the wolves, lions and tigers are kept in tiny, dirty spaces. They look like they have gone crazy and just pace back and forward like they have severe mental issues. The zoo was built in the 1950s and is kept as though it still is the 1950s.

Maybe it is worth visiting the park in peony season, but definitely don't go to the zoo.

We visited this park in early April 2012. Then the Peony Festival had just started an around 1/3 of the flowers were blossoming.

Beautiful! If you are in Luoyang during the Peony festival - then visiting this park (or some of the other parks of the City) is a must!
