South Hurstville, Friendship Park

This small reserve in South Hurstville was recently transformed into the Ma'anshan Friendship Park (right). It celebrates the Friendship City Relationship between Kogarah City Council and Ma'anshan Municipality, a city in eastern China. The statue (left) is of Li Bai, often called the 'Immortal Poet', one of China's most important poets whose contribution to Chinese literatre influenced many later poets. It was donated by the Ma'anshan Municipality as a token of friendship to Kogarah City Council in 2009.

Wonderful statue, but the fence in the back is a bit pedestrian.

As a Chinese myself, I am proud that the Ma'anshan people have given some thing to Sydney, The mayor of Sydney should give you a key to the city.
