When you reach Nenjiang Lu, you should see the entrance just few steps down Nenjiang Road.)

Some laundry and a man in PJs:
Kite vendors at the entrance to Gongqing Forest Park:
Some appeared to be made from lanyards with company logos.
A "Cicerone" of the park:
The forest was indeed full of trees:
A roller coaster:
Holiday Village playhouse:
The boys in blue stopped lounging when the horses came into view:
A bridal couple in non-traditional colors:
The cicadas were very noisy:
It looks like rain again; time to head home.
