Located between Zhongshan Bridge and Dazhi Bridge in Zhongshan District, Dajia Riverside Park is a metropolis-type greening park developed and constructed by the government. With a large area, it is a large expanse of vast grassland that enters the park. People can also look out at the Miramar Ferris wheel.

There is a large-scale water spray in the park. The height of the central water column is as high as 75 meters. It uses the visual changes of the water level to show its rhythmic characteristics.[citation needed] There are also sports parks, sports facilities such as baskets, nets, feathers, and cricket grounds, as well as several kilometers of bicycle paths around the park (bicycle rental is available in the park). Due to the wide space, parking, and environment, Dajia Riverside Park regularly holds various large-scale activities in addition to many people's sporting activities during this holiday season.[citation needed]

HistoryEdit

The park is part of the greening project around the area.[1] A water playground was opened at the park in June–September 2017.
