There are also other reception facilities, such as restaurants and shops. The water of the lake is very clear, beside the lake, there are winding corridor, pavilions, and weeping willows swaying in breeze. Fishing people are carefree and content, swimmers are enjoying the contentment, there are birds flying in the sky, fish jumping in the water, the park is full of life. In recent years, around 16th, July, “ Beihu Lake Festival” has appeared.
No one knows why the festival is on 16th, July. In fact, people come on this day to celebration is because it was the day when Chairman Mao swam in the Changjiang River, people cherish the memory of our revolutionary martyrs in this special way, and express their gratitude to the Communist Party and the Country, maybe it is a specific reflection of army reclamation culture. This beautiful land in the desert is the fruit of armymen’s wiseness, this miracle is also the fruit of people’s hard work.
