The People’s Park

Once a lake with flourishing float grass, the park is located at the west side of the Xidaqiao Bridge in Urumqi. In 10th year of the Emperor Guangxu of Qing Dynasty (1884), a kiosk was built in the center of the lake, and the lake was intitled ‘Lake Jian’, ‘Tong-le garden’. In 1921, to remember Ji Yun (Ji Xiaolan), a famous scholar of Qing Dynasty who had been banished to Urumqi, some skillful craftsmen were employed from inland China to build several halls, kiosks and pavilions in the garden according to Ji Yun’s book ‘Notes in the Thatched Hall of Yuewei’.
