Very nice Spring park. I spend really nice day in this park. I recomended this Spring Park to everyone....
I was a little weary at first wanting to visit Baotu Spring during winter but the locals say you haven't visited Jinan until you've visited this spring. I was very impressed with how this spring defied winter. So much greenery and clear water. Would definitely recommend exploring here even during winter.
The Baotu spring was like a lovely Chinese garden with the added feature of a spring. Daming Lake was less crowded and larger, but the spring was still a lovely place to visit. The kids enjoyed the animation of the emporer visiting the spring. After the park across the road had some lovely scenery (note the photo with boat) and a great range of sculptures that were fun for the kids.
Simply fresh air, great sceneries to view and you get to enjoy walking around this area.
