Xuanwu Lake Park (Xuánwühú gōngyuán)

Xuanwu Lake Park (Xuánwühú gōngyuán) Review

More lake than park, this pleasant garden is bounded by one of the longer sections of the monumental city wall, which you can climb for a good view of the water. Purple Mountain rises in the east, and the glittering skyscrapers of modern Nanjing are reflected on the calm water. Causeways lined with trees and benches connect several large islands in the lake. Pedal-powered boats cost Y60 an hour.
