Located in the west of Changshu, near Yushan Hill, Shanghu Lake Park was built in 1986. The park is set against a hill, overlooking a lake with seven islands.
Beautiful scenery, fresh air and unique history and culture all combine to make this an unforgettable getaway from the stress of big city life.
In April and May, Shanghu Lake Peony Garden, the largest of its kind south of the Yangtze River, provides a feast of color for strollers and photographers.
The garden boasts more than 50,000 peonies of nearly 300 varieties.
In recent years, the park has expanded the scale of horticulture.
Changshu has joined hands with Luoyang, Heze, Pengzhou and other scenic spots celebrated for their peonies and is planning to be part of a peony tour in China.
