The Stalin Park is located on the southern bank of the Songhua River, it was built in 1953 and originally called Jiangpan Park. Extending 1,750 meters from the Songhua River railway bridge to the east and Jiuzhan Park to the west, it is a belt-shaped open park built along the riverbank. Facing the famous Sun Island on the other side of the river and covering an area of 105,000 square meters. It has become world famous for its Russian architectural style, colorful flower beds every where in the park and the sixteen groups of art sculptures. The park is characterized by Russian style flower beds and sixteen groups of art sculptures and is lavishly vegetated with flowers and trees. The Stalin Park stands as evidence of the friendship between the world's two most powerful communist countries at that time. This place is very popular on the weekends.
Stalin Park features a spread of flowerbeds, trees and themed statues. At the centre of the park stands the Flood Control Monument built to commemorate the tremendous feat of the Harbin people in controlling the massive flood of 1957. It is the central attraction of the Stalin Park, where tourists and locals alike, all gather to enjoy a nice, sunny day in the park.
The 13m tall monument consists of one Roman style column topped with statues and a 7-meter-long curving corridor surrounding the column. Eleven small, semi-circular pools near the column mark the water level reached by the flood. More than four decades later another flood broke the monument's record, so the site was added onto to remember the victims of 1998's disastrous flood.
Following the path walking north in Stalin Park, you will find the two sides of the main path are filled with tall trees, which would be very relaxing and beautiful during summer time when the leaves are green.
