There is a fresh and spacious lawn, which measures 100,000 square meters, maintaining the landform of the gulf court of 50 years ago. The landscape designs in the zoo are a result of the consideration of the coordination between the green scenery and the ecological environment of the animal life. On the lake and amongst the reeds swim hordes of pelicans and wild geese, who from time to time fly in the blue skies, elegant and vigorous.
