It is located in Pujiazhuang, Hongshan Town, Zichuan District, Zibo City. This is the birthplace of Pu Songling, the king of short stories in the world. It belongs to the national AAAA tourist attraction and one of the five major tourist attractions in Shandong Province.

Pu Weng's descendants set up Zibo Liaozhai Tourism Development Co., Ltd. to meet the development requirements of the tourism market. They take the promotion of Pu culture as their duty, and constantly intensify the development of Liaozhai cultural tourism resources. They have formed tourist attractions such as Liuquan, Liaozhai Palace, Fox Immortal Garden, Shiyin Garden, Manjing Temple, Liqu Tea House and Cemetery, which have made the construction of Liaozhai City take shape.

Liuquan is located at the bottom of the Donggou of Pujiazhuang Village, formerly known as a well full of wells, which often overflow. Also because of the planting of willows around, there are willows and springs, also known as willow springs. At that time, it was the main road between Qingzhou Prefecture and Jinan Prefecture, with bustling passers-by. Legend has it that Pu Songling used to set up tea and smoke in Maoting Pavilion near the spring. Every time passers-by passed by, he was invited to rest. He was asked to talk about foxes and ghosts so as to collect materials and create Strange Tales from Liaozhai. Pu Songling liked Liuquan very much. He named himself "Liuquan Jushi" and carved a Liuquan seal. In his inscription "Preface to the Raising and Building of the Dragon King's Temple", he called the spring "water is clear, sweet and fragrant, wine is brewed, and incense is added, and it is not easy to give Penglai". Today's Willow Spring, although there is no spring that springs out of the day, but the Maoting Pavilion is just like, weeping willows Yiyi, still vaguely visible in that year's scenic spot. A new "Liuquan" stele, written by Mr. Shen Yanbing, has been erected beside the spring. It has become the main scenic spot in the garden, and visitors are bound to visit it.
