Waterwheel Garden: General Introduction

Lanzhou Waterwheel Garden is comprised of three parts: Waterwheel Garden, Waterwheel Square and Culture Square. The south gate of the Waterwheel Garden is a wooden gate with unique style. It is a component of a waterwheel, and also contains the meaning that Lanzhou is a city with two mountains (Lan Mountain and BaitaMountain) and a river (Yellow River).

The Waterwheel Square displays tens of waterwheels all over the world. It is said to be the largest theme park of its kind in the world.
