At the moment of this posting (2014/3/23) the peach blossoms are out, so now is the time to go! This park winds along the North Canal (北运河 – Bei Yun He) in Hongqiao District and is made up entirely of peach trees, so the park is THE destination when the trees blossom. Many people start at the West Gate and walk along the canal to come out at the other end on Guang Rong Road, the South Gate. It will obviously be very crowded on the weekend closest to the peak blossom time, but it’s definitely worth a visit.
