It's time to enjoy the cherry blossoms that Gucun Park has to offer! On a trip to Gucun Park one sunny weekend, I was greeted with pink cherry blossoms, magnolias, yellow rapeseed, and green grasslands. This is a great place to appreciate nature in spring!
🌸 Where to see cherry blossoms this spring?
Of course at Gucun park!
🌸 Every year this park is running a Cherry Blossom Festival where you can not only enjoy the amazing cherry blossoming trees and nice weather, but also make some #coolpics 📸 Prepare to walk a lot, because this park is just huge. It has a certain area known as Cherry blossom Alley, where the majority of the trees are. Also there is a Farris wheel, if you take that one, be prerared to be blown away by the amazing view (hence the ticket is a bit expensive, 40 yuan).
🌸 Actually to see those trees you don't need to rush to the Alley, cause trees can be found all over the park, but there will be less ppl with cameras so you can get all the view for yourself only. Not far from exit 3 there is a nice rosarium with the roses🌹 that are the size of my heard, a lake (you can rent a boat), and many Chery blossom trees!
🌸 My favourite part about those park is that picnics allowed, so you not only can step on the grass, but very welcomed to. This could be a nice getaway from the city for the weekend.
🌸 Also there is a BBQ zone, so if you feel like BBQ, go for it 🙌
