Lianhuashan Park

Lianhuashan is the biggest and most well-known of all the parks in the city covering a staggering 150 hectares.  It is frequently in the Trip Advisor top 10 things to do in the city and is usually one of the 1st places visited by any tourist or new residents to the city.  That is due to its convenient central location, its abundant greenery, its serene nature and its beautiful flora and fauna.  Some of the attractions here include kite square and peach grove. It also offers a sensational view of the civic center and downtown Shenzhen below you from a viewing platform that requires a short hike.
