Built in the 1960s, Guiyang Forest Park used to be the experimental forest of Guizhou Forest Science Academy and is currently the oldest and largest municipal forest park in the nation. 

Covering an area of 532 hectares, Guiyang Forest Park is located 2.5 kilometers southeast of the city's downtown area. With a bevy of rare plants, animals and tourist resources, the park is an ideal choice for tourists to relax in the nature. 

Various forest zones, such as those dedicated to the plants of Catalpa, Camphor Trees, Teak, Pine, and Alamo, are all well preserved in the park. With a forest coverage percentage up to 90, the park is densely wooded, creating an environment full of pure, fresh air. 

Lofty hills, flourishing woods and gentle breezes make it an ideal summer escape. Tourists can also find a lot of wild animals, including squirrels, pangolins, owls, pheasants, thrushes, hedgehogs, roes, hares and weasels.

Historical relics are also scattered throughout Guiyang Forest Park. For instance, there is a monument to commemorate the international medical team that helped Chinese people during the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression.

In addition, Guiyang Forest Park has a beautiful manmade lake for tourists to stroll beside while enjoying the tranquility of the forest. There are also many gardens in the park to cultivate precious plants, such as azalea and maple, for visitors to appreciate.
