Changpuhe Park in Beijing is located in the east of Tian'anmen Gate and opened in September 2002. The calamus River, also known as waijinshui River, is named after the growth of calamus in the river. Changpu River is the east section of Jinshui River in the imperial city of Ming and Qing Dynasty (it is called Changpu River in Qing Dynasty). The river flows out from the south end of the Taiye pool in the central sea of Xiyuan, turns to the southeast, passes in front of Tian'anmen Gate, and then flows eastward along the north side of the south wall of the imperial city into the Yuhe River, with a total length of 510 meters. Changpu River is not only the outlet of Xiyuan Sanhai, but also the outlet of Tongzi River, the Forbidden City, passing through Taimiao in the south.
Location of Changpuhe Park Beijing covers an area of 3.8 hectares opening hours: 6:00-22:00 admission price is free, also known as waijinshuihe, opened in September 2002
Historical evolution
From 1960s to 1970s, the rivers and ditches were filled and changed into streets.  However, the dilapidated houses were built against the red walls of the Imperial City, Taimiao and Huangshi, which seriously affected the safety of cultural relics; the river was filled and leveled, and important historical traces were lost. In 2002, Dongcheng District invested all the money to move the residents on both sides of the river, dug out the old road of Changpu River, restored the water surface, marked the Tianfei gate, illuminated the southern Imperial City, Taimiao and Huangshi Chenghong wall, and built a classical urban garden relying on historical sites. It covers a total area of 38000 square meters, with a total length of 510 meters, a water surface width of 12 meters and a water depth of 1.5-2 meters. It is connected with the Jinshui River in front of Tian'anmen Gate. Four pedestrian bridges of different shapes span the river course. 1000 kg of Koi and red fish have been put into the river course. There are more than 60 ancient trees and a large number of flowers and trees have been planted along the river. The greening rate of the whole park is 65%. Changpuhe park is a small and exquisite Chinese garden, which is very close to Tian'anmen Gate. At first, there were not many visitors, but some citizens came to play. The park doesn't need tickets. It's a quiet environment.
Landscape in the park
The calamus river originates from the central sea of the West Garden of the Imperial City, flows through the front of Tian'anmen Gate, and then eastwards along the north side of the south wall of the imperial city. The scope of Changpuhe Park: it starts from the labor people's Cultural Palace in the west, ends at nanheyan street in the East, takes off Longqiao Hutong and nanwanzi Hutong in the north, ends at the red wall in the north of Changan Street in the East, with a total length of 510 meters, a total planning area of 3.8 hectares, and a planned green space and water surface area of 2.02 hectares,
The park has a total investment of 390 million yuan, and the project started in March 2002. The river reconstruction project of Changpu River Park is excavated at the original river position and connected with Jinshui River outside Tian'an gate.  After restoration, Changpu River is about 500m in total length and 9m in water surface width, with 4 pedestrian bridges erected. In the greening construction, more than 60 trees along the river bank have been preserved, and more than 500 trees, more than 2000 shrubs, more than 16000 flowers and herbs have been newly planted, as well as a large number of river plants. Combining the greening construction with the reconstruction of historic sites, the scenic spots such as "red wall nostalgia", "calamus spring", "sky light and cloud shadow" are created. At the same time, on the basis of fully excavating the history and culture, we should appropriately set up sculpture pieces to set off the atmosphere and make the finishing touch. The night scene lighting of the park highlights the reflection of red walls and river plants, which makes people refreshing.
Main attractions
The main scenic spots of the park are "calamus welcoming spring", "Tianfei zheying", "red wall nostalgia", "lingxu flying rainbow", etc. In 2003, the Imperial City Art Museum was built in the park.
