Stalin Park

How to get there:

If you're at the train station, catch the No.11 bus.  From other parts of the city, buses No.2, 16 and 26 also have stops at the park.

Built in 1953, Stalin Park (Sīdàlín Gōngyuán, 斯大林公园) stands as evidence of the friendship between the world's two most powerful communist countries at the time of construction. The park features a spread of flowerbeds, trees and themed statues.

At the centre of Stalin Park stands the Flood Control Monument, built to commemorate the tremendous feat of the Harbin people in controlling the massive flood of 1957. The 13 m (43 ft) monument consists of one Roman-style column topped with statues and a & meter curving corridor surrounding the column. Eleven small, semi-circular pools near the column mark the water level reached by the flood.

More than four decades later, another flood broke the monument's record, so the site was updated to remember the victims of 1998's disastrous flood.
