This is a comprehensive park and is one of the popular parks in the province. It is visited by 1.2 millions of visitors annually. 

The park is comprised of five subdivisions - a zoo, a botanic garden, the Jinghu Lake, an entertainment area, and hills. Occupying a land of around 35 hectares, the park was named the Southern Suburb Park and opened to the public in 1976. In 1984, the park underwent a major expansion plan and was renamed to its current name. 

The park is a popular place for local residents and its zoo is a favorite place for families. The zoo is one of the most important breeding locations, especially for endangered tigers and lions, in China. The zoo has hundreds of wild animals and many of them are protected under the most restrictive state laws.

Jinghu Lake is a small lake and its surface area is nearly 2.2 hectares including many water-associated scenic facilities for visitors. 

The botanic garden occupies around two hectares and an oriental cheery garden is its best place to see, especially in the spring when the cheery trees bloom.
