Intended to explore Badaguan, a major scenic area, but walked about a mile in the wrong direction and instead, stumbled into the lovely Zhongshan Park. This place reminded me so much of Central Park–a giant refreshing patch of nature in an urban setting, sweetly scented from colorful botanical gardens and shadowed with a textural mixture of towering trees, dipped with lotus-filled lakes & Lilly ponds, gorgeous fountains, dotted with standard park benches, lined with natural and concrete walkways, embellished with miscellaneous art pieces and sculptures. There is also a mini amusement park and zoo hidden somewhere in between. As much as I love strolling around the city, my introverted self is extremely pleased with this new happy place to meditate, relax, unwind, photograph, reflect and find a peace of mind.
