This park is situated just at the foot of the Elephant Hill, which is about a mile north of the Old Town., it’s easy to get to, just head for the old town north gate and keep walking following the water.

It is also called Jade Spring Park, within the park; you can find several traditional structures with their own unique and fascinating stories.

The springs come from the god-protected mountains and gather in this place and finally form the dragon pool.

To the south of the pool is a small waterfall and becomes the Yuhe River, pouring life to the Old Town.

It’s a lovely old Chinese park with plenty of character, and on a clear day you can see the mountain, even in the winter we saw plenty of winter flowers and color.
