It is smaller than most famous one BaoTu spring, but means not crowed. Free entrance and gather water is allowable, even the city have self-contained water system, but locals especially old peoples still prefer gather spring for daily use.

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.
