Baimai Spring Park sits at the yard of Longquan Temple, Mingshui Town, about 50 kilometers west from Jinan. Covering an area of 25 hectares, the park was built in 1986 and consists of Moquan Spring, East Mawan Lake, Lotus Spring, Shuyu Spring and Qingzhao Temple Poetry Garden. The well of the Moquan Spring lies deep within the earth, giving the surface water an ink-like shade. The water of the Lotus Spring jets from five underground outlets, making the ripples on the surface look like blooming lotuses. Qingzhao Temple is an ancient residence of Li Qingzhao, the most eminent female poet from the Song Dynasty (960-1279).

2.  Five Dragon Pool (五龙潭)

Situated outside the west gate of the old Jinan downtown area, Wulong Pool, or Five Dragon Pool is fed by a group of artesian karst springs. With Baotu Spring in the south and Daming Lake in the north, the water quality of the pool is the best found across all the springs in the city. Five Dragon Pool Park, built in 1985, is mainly composed of a lake, a pool and 27 different springs. The architecture of the park adopted both the park-building essentials of North and South China. The place is said to have once been the residence of well-known Tang Dynasty General Qin Qiong (A.D.?-638).

3. Daming Lake (大明湖)

Daming Lake, in the heart of the downtown area, is regarded as one of the must-see tourist spots in Jinan. Covering an area of 46 hectares, the lake is fed by many artesian karst springs and hence retains a constant water level throughout the year. The average depth of the lake is two meters, and its deepest point lies at about four meters. When summer arrives, lotuses bloom on the water and half of the Daming Lake Park is filled with their fragrant scent. Willows circle the lake on three sides and swing in the breeze. Standing at the top floor of Chaoran Pavilion, built on the lake itself, you can catch a bird's-eye view of the entire area and the whole city.

4. Baotu Spring (趵突泉)

Baotu Spring is no doubt the most renowned attraction in Jinan. It is an artesian karst spring fed by underground limestone water through three outlets. The volume of the water coming out of the spring can reach up to 240,000 cubic meters per day, and the water jetting out is said to reach as high as 26.49 meters (86.9 feet). The spring water, clear and transparent, is ideal drinking water; and the water temperature remains at a constant 18℃(64.4℉) all year round. Baotu was declared the "No.1 Spring under Heaven" by Emperor Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1644 -1911), and since has become the symbol of the city.

The city moat, running around old Jinan downtown, is the only city moat in China fed by spring water. With its overall length of 6.9 kilometers, the moat links the four major springs: Baotu, Black Tiger, Peal and Five Dragon. It is surrounded by a number of scenic spots, historical relics and cultural heritage sites. During the moat tour, you can enjoy much of the city's picturesque natural scenery, including Daming Lake, Black Tiger Spring and the wetlands in the east; visit the city walls and old hydropower stop; and have some spring time fun on the bathing beach.
