Along the banks of the Ou River in this coastal Chinese city is a pleasant if ordinary green space that would hardly merit much attention except for the striking sign out front: Anti-Cult Theme Park.
"Worship Science," suggests a message painted on rocks at the entrance to the park, which was dedicated in 2012 and is the work of the Yongjia County Office on Prevention and Handling of Cult Issues and the Yongjia Anti-Cult Assn.
Admission is free, and despite the name, don't expect any roller coasters or merry-go-rounds. This is a space for exercise and indoctrination.
Within the grounds, you'll find some jungle-gym equipment and an arc-shaped pavilion with quotes on religion and nature from famous personages – Mao Tse-tung, Albert Einstein, Vincent Van Gogh.
