This announcement on a local website for ex-pats:
Two parks along Hunhe River in downtown Shenyang will open campingsites.
In the west of Shengli (shÃ¨ng lÃ¬) Bridge, Changbaidao (chÃ¡ng bÃ¡i dÇŽo) Forest Parkâ€™s campingsite is located on the southern bank of the river with a total area of 50,000 sqm.
The other place you can pitch a tent is in Shenshuiwan (shÄ›n shuÇ wÄn)Park.
But for safety, people canâ€™t stay overnight or barbecue in the campgrounds.
Â So, the camping trip goes like this: we go to the park, pitch our tents, not light campfires, and when it gets dark, we pack up our tents, go home and sleep in our own beds.
I swear to God I am not making this up. Here’s the URL:
