Datang eco-park, idyllic style in Qiandeng


Updated: 2016-07-06

Datang eco-park in Qiandeng town is the place for urbanites from nearby cities such as Shanghai and Suzhou to catch a break from the clammy summer days.

It offers a mixture of relaxing places and activities, including archaic buildings, horticultural designs, and fruit and vegetable picking and angling sites. A restaurant on-site offers dishes made of organic food grown at the park.

Verdant hollies, scarlet Chinese roses and pinkish moth orchids are planted along the winding paths. Lotus flowers and leaves float in the irrigation canals.

Maize, asparagus, cucumber, melon and tomato crops are ready for picking around this time of year.

The park has plentiful spots for angling and wooden and stone bridges for taking a leisurely stroll.
