Green Lake Park (Cuìhú gōngyuán)

Green Lake Park (Cuìhú gōngyuán) Review

Filled with willow- and bamboo-covered islands connected by stone bridges, Green Lake was once part of Dianchi Lake, but it was severed from that larger body of water in the 1970s. The park is a favorite gathering place for Kunming's older residents, who begin to congregate in the park for singing and dancing in the late morning and stay until the gates close at 11 pm. In summer the lake is filled with pink and white lotus blossoms. In winter the park fills with migrating seagulls from Siberia.
