Spent 2 days, first visiting Phase 2 (熊出没) and second day was spent visiting Pharse 4 (魔幻世界).
This is a very nice themed park which has 4 pharses. Phase 1 is the original and is located away from the other 3 pharses which are located together. Pharse 3 is a Water Park which would be an excellent choice for the hot & humid summer.
Must admit that the kids have a huge amount of fun on these 2 days. Very nicely done themed park based off a popular Chinese Cartoon 熊出没.

Jinghu Park of Wuhu

Reviewed By Allen A - Michigan

I love Wuhu. If you want to see old and new China Wuhu (Anhui province) is the town to visit. A few foreigners teach here so one is not ever along for long, there are many interesting students who will approach you n a bus to practice their English (no fears here and I have spent about 15 months here), wonderful place called Temple Mountain where one can visit and watch the monks go thru rituals. The park mentioned here was build a long time ago to connect two rivers and help the river trade/transportation. Oddly, in a very small museum on the walk around the lake mentions an American movie star of Chinese decent who helped negotiate the surrender of Japan to China with the US help. Many of the sculptures in this city are described in English and that museum had plenty of English describing the things in the museum.
The Sino-Canada College is located here and Wuhu University has wonderful student share programs with Australia. I have read Wuhu University is one of the two universities which allows foreign students and some years has students from 40 countries.
Their River Park along the Yangtze River is about 4 kilometers long, beautiful, safe and filled with art. We go there frequently.

Fenghuang Food Street

Reviewed By DaleYuzuki - Potomac, Maryland

As my spouse is a 'Wuhu-ren' (i.e. a Wuhu native) we enjoyed looking around on this street. Some of the nicer/newer restaurants had zero people in it, while other 'hole-in-the-wall' type outfits were crowded.
On interesting shop only sold small individually-wrapped snack foods, from chicken feet (really!) to handful-size portions of nuts of many kinds, to gelatins, to different kinds of meats and other snacks that may defy description.
We ended up at a recommended place, had roast duck and a chive and river-snail dish and mushrooms and pork belly (tasted much better than it sounds). Didn't get the name, but it was next to a stage area (where there's a car park).
Many of the restaurants are small informal places. Definitely worth a visit!

Jiuzi Square

Reviewed By Instantcalmer - Ko Samui, Thailand

It's close to the shopping area and eat street anyway so it's definitely worth a look.Every Chinese city has some kind of park like this, so maybe I am a little jaded. It's OK, the lake is picturesque and fairly rubbish-free. The square itself is actually round and has a great dragon/phoenix statute. Later I will try to visit at night, Chinese do great lighting including of Fountains and water spouts.

Handicap travelers can take a taxi to the temple on the backside of the mountain to avoid the long stairway up the front side. However, one misses the park and a beautiful view that way.

Mt. Zheshan in Wuhu

Reviewed By CarJunkie - Wuhu, China

This is a nice park to walk around and find some shade in the summer. There is a small amusement park and a small zoo. I didn't go into the zoo (don't really agree with them at the best of times so a small Chinese zoo may be a bit upsetting) but could see zebras and monkeys through the fence while walking past.
Like everywhere in town, if you don't look Chinese you will be stared at, shouted at and occasionally touched. This doesn't bother me but I could see how it could be quite upsetting for some. There are usually a few beggers knocking around, use your deepest, loudest angry voice to send them scurrying. Be polite and they'll assume you want them to follow you around and keep asking.

Zheshan Park

Reviewed By Instantcalmer - Ko Samui, Thailand

We visited in Autumn and the deciduous trees were stunning, primarily yellow leaves with a sprinkling of red-leaved maples. It's a great park in general, a new vista around every corner. For the uninitiated Chinese Gardens are also famous for large rocks and (sometimes rather contrived) stonework plus water features such as small lakes, water flows and Fountains besides the expected plants, flowers and trees.
Pleasant strolling will probably also let you see singers, musicians, tai chi exponents, bird fanciers and general fitness devotees primarily of the older generation. There is also a fairly large children's amusement park, a zoo, a mountain climb, statues include a snow white saluting Mao and a Buddhist monastery within the fairly large park and Gardens.
Besides the natural aspect it's a cultural experience that is worthwhile for foreigners visiting Wuhu wishing to spend a pleasant few hours.

It is just near Jinghu lake and JiuZi square. There are many shops there. However the traffic jam is a problem.
