buildings, luxuriant but well-spaced woods, flowers, exotic rocks

memorial arch. Passing through the Jianjin gate and the Lishe gate,
you will reach the Changchun Bride, where clusters of cherry trees
grow. In early spring the cherry blossoms bloom in full
profusion, deeply red or Chinese white, like colorful clouds and
morning fog, splendid and dazzling. These cherry trees are donated
by friends from Japan.
Across Changchun Bridge, turn left from another arch you will see a
lotus pond, a curved bridge and the Huxin Pavilion. The "depth of

built on the islet named "Songfen Hall".
