Dijiao Park







  Dijiao Park contains more than 800 cherry trees. Dijiao Park is Wuhan's first Jiangnan-style park. Cherry trees bloom amidst small bridges, flowing water, and ancient architectural structures. This magnificent park is full of Eastern charm.

  It was opened as a nursery garden in 1956 and was chenged into park in 1999. And in April of 2001, it was named as Dijiao Park. This park was opened to the public for free during the National Day holiday in 2004.

  The park covers an area of more than 20 hectares (308 mu), among which, the water area is of 3.2 hectares, accounting for 16 per cent of the whole.

  It is the first park in Wuhan to imitate the garden style that is popular along the southern reaches of the Yangtze River. In early spring, the cherry and peach blossoms gradually bloom across the park, the 3.2 hectare lake sparkles in the breeze, and the rows of willow trees that stand by the lake dance in the wind. Copper Aeolian bells hang on the pavilions there, and mosaics of peculiar stones delight the eyes; in the bamboo grove, trails run back and forth across the landscape.
