A nice place to hang out during summer. There were many people at the square and the Song Hua river but we do not feel crowded as the place was very big. It was relaxing and fun seeing the locals enjoying themselves along the Song Hua river, dancing or fishing.

It was just a little monument. I don't think it can be called a tower. Unless you know the history of Harbin, this won't really have much of a draw, other than proving you were in Harbin.

As a child growing up in Haerbin, this monument served as a symbol of victory for me to achieve my dreams!! I absolutely love here! Revisited in Aug 2011, I loved Songhua River and this Memorial Tower! Reminds me of the older Soviet time hero's statue. Much more lovely at night when the statue is lit.

The monument should be visited in daytime and nighttime. In the nighttime the flood control memorial tower has his better charm with all his lighting. We went back on Chinese New Year's day, very crowded of people strolling along the monument and the frozen river which has a lot of activities ongoing during the day.

If you are going to stroll Central Pedestrian Street, you should take in this photo opt as it is at the Song Hua River end of Central Street. No much except a very tall monument next to the river...

Our visit to the Flood Control Tower was brief but informative, but the best part was all the different ice activities on the frozen river immediately adjacent to the tower. The ice water swimming had been cancelled the morning we were there (-20C), but there was atleast a dozen other activities taking place.... tobogganing, dog sledding, horse sledding, bumper cars...

We visited the tower at night in the winter time and was very nice as it was all lit up. We didn't realize that just behind the tower you can go down onto the frozen river where you can see other ice sculptures, go snow tubing, dog sleds and a bunch of other activities! Very happening area! Then afterwards we... More

These days you don't see many examples of Socialist / Communist art in the streets of China, so this is a good chance to see an example of from the Marxist era. Here we have patriotic Marxist workers striking heroic poses in their efforts at flood control. It is pretty much just a historical oddity but the park it stands... More

The Harbin Flood Control Monument is a landmark structure in the Stalin Park facing directly the Zhongyang Pedestrian Central Street. It commemorates the victory of the fight against the 1957 flood. You will visit both Stalin Park and Flood Control Monument at the same time. I recommend visiting the above mentioned 3 places in 1 trip which will likely take... More

I remember reading the history of the Flood Memorial Tower and was interested in having a look. I went to the Memorial Tower twice in the same day. Once during the day, it was a little hot, and then again at night. During the day was nice but at night it was most impressive. Across the river is known as... More
