The park is located on the front slope of Daqing Mountain in Hohhot, North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region. In recent years, Hohhot has implemented a comprehensive ecological management project on the front slope of the mountain, transforming it into a new park with a total area of more than 12,000 mu (800 hectares).
