Heyuan Garden

Heyuan Garden, originally named Jixiao Mountain Village, is located at the central part of Xunningmen Street on the north bank of the ancient Canal. It was built by He Zhidao,a high-ranking official and dates back to the 9th year of Qing Dynasty Emperor Guangxu's reign(1883).

There are also some enchanting teahouses where visitors can rest and enjoy the beauty of the park. An interesting feature of this garden is a 430 meter-long covered walkway which winds through the entire complex and links the different buildings.
