Small place, free to enter but really not much to see. Other activities requires money and not related to the theme of that area.

The water wheels along the Yellow River are a very special part of Lanzhou's history. Although the river runs alongside where the town was established - it is a very dry region and over 200 water wheels were established to bring water to the region for farming and for the community.
They are fascinating structures and some are still operational so that one can experience how they operate.
A walk along the river is very satisfying and every tourist to Lanzhou must talk a leisurely walk to enjoy Lanzhou.

A winter stroll along the river in January isn't always appealing, but the history of the waterwheels made it worth the cold. While I didn't get to see the wheels in action, I could still learn and appreciate the amazing design work that put this water system in place. If you go, continue walking across the steel bridge, and warm up in the small eating shops on the side streets.

This small area by the riverside is a free area to stroll, despite there being a ticket office and barriers. Not sure why as you just walk in and out. It's quite pleasant, but the two giant waterwheels are not in action, yet remain quite an impressive sight. The riverfront gives very nice views and it's a nice place to stroll.

Features. Most are interactive and include English descriptions

An excellent display of "working" water wheels that are in a beautiful parkland/garden setting along the Yellow River.

This park with its waterwheels and pig skin rafting was interesting. I have included a photo of a family speeding down the Yellow River on such a raft. These things move at a swift pace - one way and then a speed boat brings them back.
Of a lot more interest was a gathering of hundreds of local ladies next door in various uniforms. When I asked our guide to find out what they were doing he stopped one of the women and she explained that it was community square dancing. I think something got lost in the translation. They were not all red and white as in their main photo soon others in snazzy army style uniforms arrived with boots and on the back of their shirts they had team names like US Army and SWAT XCLAN???? Some had studded knuckle duster gloves. The male role was played by ladies in trousers whilst the female role had a short skirt. Now the ladies spent most of their time standing around as we had lunch next door looking down on them. Eventually a group broke into rock and rolling alongside the old Yellow River - what is China coming to :)?

Some history on these Shuiche (water gen power) around that area and one can try rafting on the sheep skin barrels on the yellow river. Most of Lanzhou's attractions are along this yellow river including the mother n child statue which is within walking distance.

The wooden waterwheels are like ones I've seen preserved elsewhere in China, from Zhangjiajie to Tashgurkan, but the main attraction of this park are the pigskin rafts. They are basic rafts floating on what seem to be inflated, tied up pigskins, which you can ride down the yellow River and have a motor boat bring you back.

I was in Lanzhou for 5 weeks and spent quite a bit of time wandering around the water park, it's a shame I was there in winter as the water features would look beautiful! This place has a nice peaceful feeling. I walked here at all times of the day and always felt safe. A must see.
