Built to herald the new millennium, this sprawling 140-hectare (346-acre) park lies at the southern terminus of Century Boulevard (Shiji Da Dao), which runs from the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Designed by a British firm, the park is divided into seven scenic areas including a minigolf course, a beach area complete with manmade cobblestone beach, a bird-protection area, and an international garden area. The center of the park contains a lake where fishing poles and paddleboats can be rented. There's plenty here to distract the kids, but it's an even better place to watch local families enjoy themselves.
