Daming Lake

Daming Lake is a vast lake whose shores are home to many pavilions, terraces, kiosks and chambers. The name of the lake was first written in the Commentary on the Waterways Classic because of the lush foliage that, at points, blocks the sky and creates a unique scene. There are several famous spots to see along the lake, including the Nanfeng Temple and Beiji Tower, to name a few. There is also a famous garden, Xiayuan Garden, built in 1909, that is a replica of Tianyige Tower of Ningbo and is the best garden to see in Jinan.
Daming Lake Park covers a total area of 860,000 square meters with more than 50% of it are lake area. The six islands in Daming Lake contain flowers, trees and other plants flourishing amongst the various pavilions. The lake is a center of activity and one can find fish leaping near yachts and boats. In summer, lotuses bloom uninhibitedly filling half of the park with its fragrant scent. At the same time, willows circle the lake on three sides and swing with the breeze, a scene for which Daming Lake is famous. The centerpiece of the lake is a great man-made hectometer fountain built in 1985. The fountain has 103 injectors, and the main injector can spout water as high as 100 meters (about 328 feet) in all its majesty.
