Zhongshan Park Overview
Located in the city center, the Zhongshan Park was the old Beishan Mountain which called Chashan Mountain. In the 14th year of the Republic of China（1925）, the Beishan Mountain was built into a park and was named Zhongshan Park, which is the oldest park in Wuzhou city. The earliest Sun Yat-sen's Memorial Hall in the country is situated on the top of Beishan Mountain, a municipal historical relic reservation which was proposed to build by Li Jishen in March, 1925. The Memorial Hall mainly tells visitors Sun Yat-sen’s three visits to Wuzhou between late 1921 to early 1922, and its contents are mainly about how he constructed the local people to build their homeland and to solve the Xijiang River’s problem. The Sun Yat-sen's Memorial Hall is of imposing appearance and size. It has a front building and a back building. There is a four-stored tower building of domical style in the middle of the front building and two two-stored architectures in the east and west, all of them are showing room. The back building is a Thousand People Assembly Hall.
