The Ancient Lotus Pond Garden is featured with significant garden elements in both North and South China. It is one of the oldest classical gardens in China. The Garden covers an area of 24,000 square meters including the water area of 7,900 square meters.

The pond is divided into south and north ponds by the central island. The south pond is in a half-moon shape with verdant green pines and cypresses around. The north pond is in an irregular rectangular shape, surrounding by white stone piles and willows. There is a pavilion in the middle of the whole pond. Sceneries in the garden are exquisite and artful, blending the quintessence of both south and north Chinese garden styles.
