Afternoon -- Visit Shenshuiwan Park for the natural wetland and urban forest. The park is divided into three zones: natural scenery, culture and leisure, as well as fitness and entertainment.

Evening -- Savor barbecue and beers with local people in sidewalk snack booths, enjoying the debonaire spirit in the air during summertime. Then go to Yunyang Pavilion and see its main pavilion and four small ones. It is not only a tourist attraction, but also an outdoor activity space for both tourists and the city’s residents, serving as a stage for professional performances, such as the Hunhe River Symphony Music Festival and the Summer Culture and Art Festival in Shenyang.
