Tuanjiehu park covers 12.3 hectares, including 5.4 hectares lake. The park including the digging of the lake, was built in 1958 by the public community (farmers, business men, workers, students, soldiers…) under the supervision of Chaoyang district People’s government. The park was named Tuanjie, which means “solidarity“, as a tribute to concerted efforts. 
The park opened to the public in 1986. 

With grey-tiled roofs and white-washed walls, the park ressembles gardens in South China. The main attractions include Cloud Mountain, Cloud walls, Deyue Corridor, Sunset Pavillon, Huanbo bridge, Jiexiu bridge, Yinsheng bridge. Rocks, water, willows and bamboos, lotuses retain the charm of regions from south of Yangze river. 

The park also features children playground, exercise equipment zone recreational areas and boat areas, artificial beach and wave pool...
