Evergreen Park (万绿园) is a public park located in Longhua District, Haikou, Hainan Province, China.[1][2] It is the largest park in the city, and is situated between Bin Hai Road and the north coast of the main part of Haikou. The park contains approximately ten thousand coconut trees and hundreds of species of South Asian ornamental plants. It was opened in January 3, 1996, and is the main site of many of the city's festivals and events, including all the major fireworks displays. It contains an artificial lake, a small amusement park, and various kiosks.

The Hainan Exhibition & Convention Center and Haikou Great Hall of the People (a concert hall) are adjacent to the west side of the park. The mouth of the Haidian River and the Haikou Century Bridge are located by the eastern side. Haikou City Stadium is located on Binhai Road, at the southeastern corner of the park.

It is one of four major parks in Haikou, and can be compared to Baishamen Park, due to its high percentage of grass fields. The other two, Golden Bull Mountain Ridge Park and Haikou People's Park, have a high percentage of tree cover.
