Xiaoyaojin Park

This card was sent to me by Shijunjun from China as a private swap. It shows Xiaoyaojin Park, which is famous fro its beautiful sceneries.

Xiaoyaojin Park, known as Leisure Ford Park in English, is a famous battlefield. A long time ago, Zhang, taking almost all of his troops, initiated a night attack on the Sun barracks, which were unprepared, and this led to a long bloody battle. The outcome was the defeat of Sun's army. However, Sun escaped death by jumping over the neighboring canal. Today, the place is a park and is of much interest to those who love plants and animals. There is a botanical garden here, consisting of bonsai and rare Chinese plants, as well as a local zoo.[link]
