We did some research and, according to the Chenzhou City government website, “Beihu park covers an area of 474 mu, of which 206 mu water area. It has tourist attractions as Forking Fish Pavillion, Statue of Chinese Woman Volleyball Team, Beihu lake and moonlight, Outai Eden, etc.
Beihu lake and moonlight was one of Eight Sceneries in Chenzhou in Yuan Dynasty. Hangyu, the famous poet in Song Dynasty once came here and wrote Forking Fish Poem for Beihu Park. Forking Fish Pavillion and a statue of Hangyu was built in memory of Hangyu.”
I have been told I am not allowed to make a Forking Fish joke. –Mark
