Urumqi People's Park

People's Park is located in the west bank of Urumqi River and it is the biggest park in urban Urumqi. People’s Park is also called 'the park for sharing happiness’. It was first established in 1755 and expanded in 1918.

It was originally a stretch of marshland and lakes surrounded by luxuriant centuries-old trees. Now it is a scenic, tree-shaded park with pavilions and a lake where you can hire a rowboat. The best time to visit is in the morning when local people exercise.
