Simple spring

This is located beside the Spring city park. Many locals went there to get water. It is a very simple park and it is free.

We stayed at Home Inn Baotuquan right in the central area of Jinan. After check-in, we went to Quancheng City Square for a stroll and had our dinner. After the dinner, we strolled along the moat beside the Quancheng Square and found ourselves right in the middle of a number of springs and one of them is the famous Black... More

To see it at it's best you need to be there on a Sunday morning when all the locals and not so locals come to use this community area and to take home thir spring water in large plastic water...

Hiehu Spring or Black Tiger Spring is one of the more spectacular springs that you will see on the riverside walk from Spring City Square, the main square in Jinan. As xingming has said the riverside walk starts from the north east corner of Spring City Square. It is best at first to walk on the south side of the... More

It is easily accessible from Quancheng Square and it is quiet despite the number of people that come to it regularly. You will usually see people gathering water there as it is supposed to be the best in the area and healthier than other options. I don't know if that is the case, but I hear it from locals all...

I found the best way to see the Heihu spring is to enter the riverside walk from the north east corner of the city Square, down the stairs to the Hucheng riverside walk. As you walk this path along the river you see various small springs before coming to the bigger and better known Heihu spring. The stream of locals... More
