Black Dragon Pool Park, also named Jade Spring Park, shows visitors picturesque scenery with a large crystal pool, luxuriant trees, a tall mountain and historic buildings in graceful shapes.Located at the foot of Elephant Hill, a short walk north along Square Street of Lijiang Old Town in Yunnan Province, China, it was built in 1737 during the Qing Dynasty and offers a spectacular view on the region's tallest mountain, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, over its white marble bridge. The park features several smaller temples and pavilions.

With an area of 40 hectares (over 430,000 sqft), the Heilongtan pool provides a heaven for birds and water-life, with spectacular plants. The pool is surrounded by some ancient monuments, such as the Longshen Temple, the Deyue Pavilion, the Suocui Bridge, and the Hanyue Stage.The arrival at the park is along a colored cobbled lane to reach a white marble bridge over emerald water: the Suocui Bridge. To your north, weather permitting, you might see the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain with its white snow, the source of the Jade Spring and its famous white clouds. The Deyue Pavilion rests at the center of the lake, on the same axis as the Hanyue Stage. At the gate, there is a pair of couplets inscribed by the famous Chinese writer Guo Moruo.

Located in the north of the park, the Five-Phoenix Tower is also called Fayun Pavilion which was built in 1601 and moved to the Jade Spring Park from Fuguo Temple. It is a great piece of Naxi architecture combining the architectural style of Tibet, Bai minority and Han nationality. The pavilion is decorated with colorful paintings and exquisite carvings. The pavilion is 23 meters tall with three layers. Looked from point of view, the pavilion shows 5 cornice, hence its romantic name: the Five-Phoenix Tower.

Every March, when the weather is delightful, the local community gathers at the Dragon God Temple to pray and seek blessing. The emerald spring waters are famous for their curative powers, whether for stomach troubles or to enhance your complexion.
