Loquat Mountain Park

The park is crowned with bamboo trees. Flowers and grass are lush. The air is fresh. It's an oasis in the urban city.

The Loquat Mountain Park is a private garden owned by former president of Sichuan province during the period of the National Government, with the name of "Kingdom". In 1955, the name of the park was changed into "Loquat Mountain Park" and it's opened to the public. About the origin of the name of mountain, some people think there were a lot of loquat trees on the mountain many years ago, so it got the name;some people think that's because the shape of the mountain looks like a lute (a string instrument with fretted fingerboard), and the pronunciation is similar with that of "loquat" in Chinese.

The best time for traveling is morning certainly when the air is especially fresh.
