The Ruzi Pavilion lies in the center of West Lake. In the Southern Tang Dynasty, Ruzi terrace was built .In early Ming Dynasty, Mayor Xu Fang set up "a Hermit Temple”. Later on, Xu Zhang built a pavilion north to the temple in memory of his ancestor, Xu Ruzi. The terrace was thrown away into the river during anti-Japanese War. The Pavilion was broken, and only the structure remained.

Clear water pass gently by the pavilion, hills and stones pile up around the trees, and willow trees are densely planted around bank, just like green curtain. The park came alive again. Thus, the Willows around the Pavilion, One of Top Ten Yuzhang Sceneries was restored.
