Orange Island Park
Orange Island Park, known as " Juzizhou Park, is an islet in Xian
gjiang River, Changsha City. As early as in Tang Dynasty, oranges were produced abundantly and sold to distant Jianghan areas. Juzizhou had been a famous scenic spot of Hunan Province since the ancient time. It is a place with the scenery of "snow on the river", one of the eight sceneries of ancient Xiaoxiang.
Juzizhou is a bridge where the present meets the past. It adds a profound cultural legacy to Xiaoxiang culture. Zhuzhang Ferry, a ferry for Zhu Xi and Zhang Shi coming from the south to take a boat to Yuelu Academy and Chengnan Academy for giving lectures, describes the grand situation of Hunan students coming for study eight hundred years ago; Shuilu Temple and Gongji Tower are telling the prosperity of religious culture in Yuan Dynasty; the sound of clarion for Zeng Guofan training Hunan navy force is lightly vaguely sounded in the sky above Juzizhou; Weather-beaten foreign consulate and advanced villas witnessed the history after Changsha became a commercial port; When Mao Zedong was standing at Juzizhou, he threw such a question to the vast sky—"asking the vast land, who will determine the ups and downs". He changed the process of Chinese history and showed special preference to Juzizhou.
