Xihui Park is a comprehensive large-scale park with numerous cultural relics and entertainment facilities. It includes famous scenic spots such as Jichang Garden, Huishan Temple, and Huishan Spring. You can visit the famous historical sites such as Jichang Garden and Huishan Spring and climb Xishan Mountain, which is where the name 'Wuxi city' comes from. To the east of this scenic spot is Yingshan Lake and to its east is Xishan Mountain. According to legend, during the Qin dynasty, this place was rich in tin ores (which is pronounced Xi in Chinese), however, in the Han Dynasty, tin ran out - which means no (Wu) tin (Xi) therefore Wuxi's city name was derived from this.
