Thre are n number of springs around the lake. The water is pure and highly potable. People can be seen carrying them for drinking purpose. The walk way is lovely. This has prpobably worlds one and only swimimg pool fed by the natural springs.

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 the time.

It is a nice place to visit as there are places to sit and relax, especially on a hot day as it usually is quite hot here in the summer.

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 collecting their water is continuous. You can then continue your walk along the river walk which I think is known as Huancheng Park. When you come to the end you will see a riverside swimming pool to your right and you cross the bridge to your left to make your way back to your starting point but from the other side of the river. There are various springs on this side of the river also. Try to do this walk by night too. You will come across people bathing (toothbrush soap and all), swimming in both the springs and the river, (in spite of the swimming strictly forbidden signs!) and the lighting is low key and attractive. Be sure to look up for the Liberation Pavilion adorned with it's red star - it looks spectacular at night. Sensible shoes a must - there are some stepping stones to negotiate along the path which are easy by day but a little trickier in the dark.

Local folks were catching drinking water from the spring. Some did their laundries, while a few were swimming in the canal. I enjoyed the morning stroll along the park. Both sides of the canal were lined with beautiful weeping willows.
