To Historically, Xingtai was once a rare spring area in North China, where water flooded with hundreds of caves and nectar overflowed, forming a natural wonder of "all springs around Xingtai". Among them, the most famous spring is Dahuo Spring. During the Xianping period of the Northern Song Dynasty, Xingzhou Governor Liu Kaijun built a pavilion and planted willows here, which made it a victory for a county, and later Dahuo Spring opened a park. The entire park is based on corridors, pavilions, bridges, platforms, pavilions and buildings in classical garden architecture.
