Viewing Fish At Flower Pond

Overview
Viewing Fish at Flower Harbor is also known as Western Hill Park with its front gate facing Su Causeway and the Outer West Lake, its back gate facing Yang Gong Causeway, while its southern gate lying across the Nanshan Road.

History & Background
Initially, during the Southern Song Dynasty, a palace eunuch named Lu Yunsheng built for himself a garden villa and cultibated fish and flowers in it after he retired from his official post. Inside the park was a fishpond and a stream nearby was ushered into the pond for raising goldfish. Later the private garden began to gain a big fame in Hangzhou as Flower Harbor and became a recreation resort for viewing goldfishes. Painters and poets vied each other for depicting the garden in their inspirational artworks. In the Qing Dynasty, the park was relocated in today's   place, much nearer to the West Lake.

Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty visited the Park on one of his inspection trips to this part of China. The emperor was so pleased and inspired by the flowers and goldfish he saw at the garden that he wrote a poem to praise the resort as well as in memory of his visit. “A stream from the Flower Hill flows into the Flower Harbor, The petals fall on the fish who sucks at them, But in autumn one finds a world quiet and serene.”

Since 1952 large-scale extensive expansions of the park have been carried out and its present area is 22 hectares. It consists of five scenic areas: red carp pond, peony garden, the lawn, a forest and Flower Harbor.

Highlight
Viewing Fish at Flower Harbor is famed for its half-a-year-long flower scenery. The best time for flower viewing is when spring translates itself smoothly into summer. The garden is full of flowers. The red fish pond is fringed with blossoms and verdant trees while fishes hover and float soundlessly; the peony garden showcases the celestial tints and aromas in supreme elegance; streams bubble their way into the flower harbor, without minding the changing time. The widespread lawn is deeply colored by green grasses, and the dense wood hides away paths stretching into it under its flourishing grace.
