geographical environment

In 2006, when Qinghe District, the main urban area of Huai'an City, started to build a new Qinghe District, the construction of ancient Huai River cultural and ecological scenic spots also started. "To construct the cultural and ecological scenic spot of the ancient Huaihe River, we must rely on the original ecological resources of the ancient Huaihe River bank, fully tap the rich mine of the ancient Huaihe River culture, and highlight the profound Huaihe River, Huairen and Huaihe history culture. Not only should the scenic spot be built into an ecological corridor and cultural development zone connecting the new and old urban areas, but also people gradually feel the prosperity of the ancient folk songs, such as "walking thousands of miles, not as well as the two sides of the Huaihe River". Xiao Benming, Secretary of the Qinghe District Party Committee, positioned the construction of scenic spots in this way.

Relying on the original ecological shoreline of 3.5 kilometers with lush trees and interesting wilderness, Qinghe District carried out ecological restoration and functional reconstruction of the original ditches, ponds and pits, and built a number of urban leisure parks such as Egret Lake, Qinglong Lake and Guhuai River Ecological Park. A number of cultural projects have been completed successively, such as the Huaiyang Cuisine Culture Museum of China, the China Journey to the West, the Changrong Theatre, the Xunzi School Art Museum, the Langjingshan Photography Art Museum, the Huai'an Urbanization History Museum of China, the Qinghe Culture Museum, the Qinghe City Museum, the Ancient Huailou-Jianghuai Wedding Customs Museum, the Red Joy Club Hall and the Ancient Huaihe Culture Square Cultural and ecological scenic spots.
