With the hectic pace of modern city life, it’s important to take time out to kick back every now and then. To help you get your lounge on, we’ve rounded-up some of the most relaxing spots in all of Zhengzhou.
1) Zhengzhou National Forest Park郑州国家森林公园
Located in northeastern Zhengzhou, the National Forest Park occupies over 576 acres comprised of softly rolling sand dunes, lush and misty forest and rippling pools dappled with light. Step into the thick woods here and all will be quiet, the air wonderfully fresh. Take bus 39 or 21 from the train station directly to the entrance of the forest park, and then walk east to the Public Ecology Park. Tickets are 10 RMB.
The park has barbecue grills available for guests to rent and an upscale, fully outfitted fitness park can be found within the ecology park.

This unique road not only has a fast lane for cars and a sidewalk for pedestrians, it also boasts a special “Milky Way (Tianhe) Road” specially designed for the enjoyment of visitors. Running perpendicular to the Yellow River’s Tianhe Road, this stretch is sure to provide guests with an appreciation for the wonders of modernity. At the northeastern intersection between Tianhe Road and Kaiyuan Road is the oldest tree garden in all of Zhengzhou; 3,721 trees can be found within, including three that are over 1,000 years old.
