Daguan Park, meaning Grand View Park, is a lakeside park located in the southwestern suburb of Kunming City. One can overview the Western Mountains and sit beside the sparkling Lake Dianchi. Each summer, Daguan Park provides visitors with spectacular and grand views.

Among shady walks and pools, Daguan's focal point is Daguan Ge, a square, three-storeyed pavilion built to better Kangxi's (a king of Qing Dynasty) enjoyment of the distant Western Hills and now a storehouse of calligraphy extolling the area's charms. The most famous poem in the park is a 118-character verse, carved into the gateposts by a scholar in Qing Dynasty, reputed to be the longest set of rhyming couplets in China.
