Parks in China are always the central places where local people can hangout, chat and socialize with others. Because most small parks have no entry fee, it is easy for locals to access them. There is always a lot going on in the parks. Locals use the parks to write calligraphy, practice tai chi, watch opera and fan dancing, play ping pong, badminton, and mahjong, and do traditional and ballroom dancing. . The public Parks are a microcosm of Chinese culture, since a lot Chinese still live in small apartments without private gardens. Parks provide a good place to hangout and to socialize. Here is a small project I have done in public parks.
