Located on the eastern side of the Li River, it is now the largest park in the city proper. The park covers an area of over 100 hectares. It takes its name from its seven peaks, which are supposed to resemble the star pattern of the Great Bear constellation. There are a few nice caves in these peaks, where visitors have inscribed graffiti for centuries, including "Seven Star Cave", which are quite famous for having stalagmites, stalactites and other natural formations that resemble animals and landscapes. Other attractions include Camel Hill, in the small square in front of which former US President Bill Clinton gave a speech on environmental protection in 1998. A pretty bonsai garden and stone exhibition are situated nearby.
Hua Bridge, a 5-arch bridge in the park, is famous for its elegant style. It was originally built in the Song Dynasty and rebuilt in 1965. The length of the bridge is 134.66 meters.
Putuo Peak is the most premier attraction of the park. It abounds with caves and pavilions. It consisted of Xuanfeng Cave, Seven Stars Cave, the Tomb of the Three Generals and the Tombs of 800 Heroes, Putuo Stone Forest, Xuanwu Pavilion and Zhaixing Pavilion. The Seven Star Cave is a fantastic karst cave with a large number of stalagmites and stalactites, which decorate the cave into an eye-dazzling beautiful place.
