Lotus flowers are hailed as a faithful and unyielding flower in Chinese culture as they rise above the muddy waters and bloom under the burning summer heat.

The seeds and roots of lotus can be made into delicious dishes, and the leaves are traditional Chinese herb capable of treating sunstroke, fever and diarrhea.

The park has also prepared other treats for visitors to beat the summer heat. Some 130 electric fans have been installed in its 12 verandas in the park to cool down the air. Cold beverages are also available.
