The biggest continuously blossoming cherry plantation in China, the park boasts more than 700,000 flowers. It has blazed a new type of development by integrating natural landscape, leisure agriculture and unique cultures. 

The park will upgrade several infrastructural facilities as its next-step, including the walking trail and the entrance and reception center, which will be expanded. The park intends to develop into a culture park with cherry blossom-themed camping and night touring.
