Two Lakes in Xicheng District Honored with 2018 Beijing’s Beautiful Lakes
After initial evaluation, audit, third-party survey and monitoring, expert assessment and public recognition survey, 12 rivers and lakes are finally selected as "2018 Beijing’s Beautiful Rivers and Lakes". The Shichahai Lake and the Taoranting Lake in Xicheng District are honored with this title.
The Shichahai area is the largest historical area in the central Beijing, with the best preserved style and legacy of the old capital. It is also the only open 4A-level scenic spot with open water in the central Beijing, known as the "water town in northern China". It’s the origin of the old capital and Beijing culture, a place where people can experience folk custom and history, at the same time enjoy fashion. In 2018, the Shichahai Sub-district of Xicheng District built a 6-kilometer walkway adjacent to the Shichahai Lake, where people can enjoy the pleasure of water, viewing, walking and fitness.
The water area of the Taoranting Lake is 16.15 hectares, which is the major landscape of the Taoranting Park. The center is the lake island, surrounded by weeping willows and beautiful environment. In recent years, according to the specific conditions of the water of the Taoranting Lake, relevant government departments have built a lake water treatment system and made efforts to ensure the quality of water bodies by improving water source, using lake water circulation flow facilities and plug-flow aeration facilities, building wetland and planting aquatic plant, resulting in remarkable achievements.
