Suzhou - Lion Grove Garden

Jiangsu - Lianyungang - Nanjing - Suzhou - Wuxi - Yangzhou - Zhenjiang

Lion Grove (Shizilin) is arguably Suzhou's best example of using a garden to evoke images in the mind.

Taihu lake rock arrangements display leonine forms throughout the garden. Lion Grove pleases the mind with discoveries around every corner as you use your imagination to appreciate the forms around you.

This garden is not very large and gets crowded relatively quickly. Going early to beat the crowds could help. A visit here can be followed by a visit to the larger Humble Administrator's Garden not far to the north on Dongbeijie.
