Next to the bridge at Shaoxian Lu - This is the latest extension

Between Gangtie Dajie and Shaoxian Lu. Closer up view.

Same shot normal lens

You can see these sails in the winter photos

The Tuanjie Dajie end where they are extending this water catchment

You actually do have to walk across that bridge - but it is now falling apart

Last time I was on the other side taking photos. You can see them in the links below.

I have previously provided some winter photos of this park. The photos were taken on the park side. Now it is late spring and the other day I went and took these photos from the other side of the water. I had to wait one whole month to find a day when both the weather was fairly clear and I had time to go there.

I actually come to this place a lot because it is on my exercise route. I do an hour and a half circuit and cross through this park to get to the other main road to do the return journey.

Helen (from the Ukraine) whose photograph appeared in an article I wrote about the Foreign Affairs Dept Christmas Party, was telling me that she and her friend had been told to go see the 'Waterfalls'. She followed directions to the end of the No. 10 bus line, but couldn't find any waterfalls.

Chinese people 'even in Chinese' are not always that good at giving directions and they forgot to tell her that she had to walk a couple of hundred metres to the Bridge.

The waterfall of course is not a waterfall, but a series of water catchments. Work is continuing at both ends to extend the catchment area. On the map, this area is a dry river bed. They have actually only built on one side of the dry river. The other side has been filled in.
