Thousands of visitors come to this park every year. The park features
both man-made and natural points of interest. There are about 750 trees,
50,000 shrubs and 330,000 square feet of grass in this park, enough

fountain), exquisite art, and inspiring statues. During hot summer days
and nights, the five-ring water fountain is a popular spot to cool off.
