Guiyang Forest Park Picture

The Guiyang Forest Park is the first and largest urban forest park in China

The Guiyang Forest Park is the first and largest urban forest park in China. At the front gate is an ancient plank-way pass where armies were stationed during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Some guest-greeting pavilions and archways can also be found here. More than 1 million species of rare plants and trees are widely planted here, among them mason pine, cypress, oak, poplar, pine, China fir, Chinese catalpa, camphor trees and tea-oil trees are just a sampling. There are also flower beds, orchards, tea houses and the Zhong Shan Garden in the park along with the well preserved stone tablets and cliff-carvings of the Qing Dynasty. The monuments to the international medical aid workers to China and the tomb of an English woman-doctor Gaotianyi, stand in the park in memory of the aid of friends abroad during China's Anti-Japanese War. The park is densely wooded and quite secluded. The forest stretches miles, giving its cool shade to everything.
