Lianhua Mountain or Lianhuashan Park is covered with a large number of tropical and subtropical plants forming a natural oxygen bar in the city center. There are mountains, trees and lakes making it suitable for relaxing, walking, sports and climbing. In the Peak Park, you can also look at the bronze statue of Deng Xiaoping.
The park is located at the northern end of Shenzhen’s downtown area, with Hongli West Road in the south, Lianhua Road in the north, Caitian Road in the east and Xinzhou Road in the west. The park has entrances on all four sides, with the main entrance to the south.
Especially worth mentioning is the kite plaza in the southeast of the park. There are two large lawns and every weekend and holiday, many citizens and tourists come here to fly kites. It has become a major cultural landscape in Shenzhen. There are kites for sale in the park shop. If the weather is right, you can experience flying kites and relive your childhood fun.
Lianhua Mountain is also a hot spot for casual hiking in Shenzhen. Because the altitude is not high, it is far less difficult than the Wutong Mountain. There are many tree-lined hiking trails in the northwest and north of the park. There are also two hiking trails on the south slope of the main peak that lead directly to the peak. Walking through the trails in the mountains, you can enjoy the mountaineering fun, not too tired, climb up to about 20 minutes, very relaxed. Standing on the peak, you can overlook the central area of Futian.
On the peak, you’ll also find the bronze statue of Deng Xiaoping. Many visitors come here to pay tribute to this bronze statue and take a group photo with it. In the urban planning exhibition hall on the north side of the square, the development history of Shenzhen since the reform and opening up is recorded. If you are interested, you can go in and visit (free of charge).
Lianhuashan Park has very convenient transportation. The Guanshanyue Art Museum near the south gate of the park and the surrounding Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center often have good exhibitions and can be enjoyed together.
