Er Hai park 洱海公园
Erhai park, 2 km. away from Dali City proper, is located at Tuanshan Mountain, south of Erhai Lake. It was built in 1976, covering 1,674 mu of land. In the Tang Dynasty, Tuanshan was called Xilongshan Mountain and the park used to a lonely island in the lake, a hunting and deer-raising palace for Nanzhao King in Tang Dynasty. When water abated, a natural mountain surrounded by water at its three sides was shaped. Because the mountain goes lower down from the west side to east, like a sleeping dragon near the beach. So it was also named Sleeping Dragon Mountain. On the mountain there is a pavilion named Zhu Hai Pavilion, one of the places of historical interest. And now, the mountain is covered with pine,
Er Hai park is a nice place to go with kids.
There is a small zoo inside with a lot of monkeys that would like to get some of your bananas.
Apart from the monkeys, they do have some other animals ( Bear, Peacock and more ).
The kids will probably like to jump on the trampoline for 10 RMB.
There is also a small amusement park inside with some rides .. and it can be also a good idea to seat and enjoy the amazing ErHai View.
At the end of the park ( or the beginning ), there is a small park with some Sculptures.
If you get out of the seaside it's also amazing.
