Views from Travelers:
The environment there is very good. I always pass there and come across lots of patents taking their children playing there.
It does not need reservation. You can go to learn something about Jishuitan and some about the canals. There is also a garden, which is quite suitable for relax.
The memorial hall is just on the south side of the bus station in the east of Jishuitan Bridge. The park is small but beautiful. Climbing on the mountain, you can visit the memorial hall for free. It feels good.
