How to Go :
天津水上公园 Tian Jin Shui Shang Gong Yuan (The Tianjin Water Park) is the largest urban park and recreation area in Tianjin, China. The park is one of Tianjin’s leading tourist attractions, which was officially acknowledged when it was listed in the National Tourism Administration 4A Level List of Scenic Sites in 2004. The facility is not actually a ‘waterpark’, and another name for the park is Shuishang Leyuan Amusement Park. The Tianjin Water Park formerly known as “Green Dragon Pond” (青龙潭) prior to its official establishment. Its history can be traced back first century AD. Historically, the site was known for its lush vegetion and natural ecosystems, particular in summer and autumn. The Tianjin Water Park consists of nine islands (Islands 1 – 9) and three lakes (East Lake, West Lake and South Lake). Surrounding the waterways are pathways, pagodas and gardens. The gardens showcase both Chinese and foreign architectural styles. It also said that the park changes its theme according to season, for example, during spring there is the Tulip Show, and in autumn there is the Chrysanthemum Show.
Because my girlfriend and two of my friends love to play in amusement park, we decide to try all extreme rides in this park. Too bad, one of my friend, Andrew afraid to take the rolling machine ride. So it’s just 4 of us who play in this rides. We also try the train rides that sliding on the water. It’s really fun. We get wet a little after playing this rides that. It’s really fun.
What makes us disappointing is the roller coaster was not operating that time. Too bad… When looking at the height of the roller coaster ride, this ride should be pretty exciting. I hope next time i can try the roller coaster. After satisfied playing all the rides available, we decide to go home to dormitory.
