Situated on the eastern side of the Taiping Mountain is situated the Zhongshan Park. It is the oldest and largest park of the city. The park faces the sea on the south and is surrounded by mountains on the other three sides. It was built in 1901 and renamed in 1929 after the provisional president Dr. Sun Yat-sen (or Sun Zhongshan), a great forerunner of the Chinese bourgeois-democratic revolution.
The park has around 100,000 plants and more than 300 species of plants including Kentucky coffee trees, oak trees, medicinal magnolia barks and some foreign species that are rare in China. There is also a long Cherry Blossom Street, just opposite to the park. Here grows hundreds of cherry blossoms that were transported from Japan long time back. From mid- April this place has a spectacular view as all the flowers are bright and blooming at this time of the year.
There is also a Sweet- osmanthus Garden and a Peony Garden where the colourful flowers bloom with the sweet scent all around during late autumn. The Peony Garden represents richness, honor, luck and happiness and is the most visited part of the garden. The special lotus in the park is a symbol of the friendship between China and Japan. The annual Summer Lantern Show and Late-autumn Chrysanthemum Show are also popular with tourists.
