XiaoYushan Park, also known as Little Fish Hill, was built between 1983 and 1985 as the first classical Chinese-style park in the city. The park’s position about 200 feet (60 meters) above the surrounding city makes it a wonderful scenic viewpoint, where visitors can gaze down on Zhanqiao Pier, Little Qingdao Island, No. 1 Bathing Beach and Badaguan Scenic Area.
At the heart of XiaoYushan Park sits an elegant three-story, octagonal Chinese pavilion, called the Lanchao (Watching Tide) Pavilion. A spiral staircase leads to viewing platforms on both the second and third floors. Two smaller pavilions afford views of Huiquan Bay and the surrounding maplewood forest.
Plan to visit XiaoYushan Park early in your trip to get a visual overview of the sites and attractions you’ll be visiting later on.
