Attraction details
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Black Tiger Spring is one of the 72 sacred springs of Jinan. This area is so beautiful to be breathtaking. To see it at it's best you need to be there on a Sunday morning when all the locals and not so locals come to use this community area and to take home thir spring water in large plastic water bottles. The area also hosts an English speakers gathering on Sunday mornings from 9.30 till lunch time where many foriegners and Chinese meet to discus travel and events.
I was invited having accidentally met a member. It was fantastic
It is also a very beautiful area and all the natural springs and water features add to the charm.
A must see and experience. Jinan is an unhearalded lovely city, I recommend it highly.

I went here with my dad, the moat goes around the whole city, however, ehihu - black tiger springs is an exceptional part of the moat, you will see local people actually using buckets and tea pots to get spring water and bring it back home or to their local businesses, the walk itself around there is lovely and especially in the summer I can imagine it to be amazing, nearby, you will also find other springs such as 9 beautiful women spring.

It was more like the old times, and interesting to see the local people fetching water from the spring.

Hiehu Spring or Black Tiger Spring is one of the more spectacular springs that you will see on the riverside walk from Spring City Square, the main square in Jinan. As xingming has said the riverside walk starts from the north east corner of Spring City Square. It is best at first to walk on the south side of the river. There are a number of smaller springs that one passes before reaching the spectacular Black Tiger Spring. What is amazing is that this riverside walkway and these springs are right in the centre of the city. The water is so clear – no wonder the local people fill up there water containers from the springs.
We continued on from Black Tiger Spring on the riverside walkway all the way round to near the East gate to Da Ming lake. It was a very nice pleasant walk and we had another fine walk through the Da Ming lake trails to the Main Gate to the lake, then across the road and up through the old part of town to Furong Street. We ended back close to our starting point at Spring City Square. It took us about an hour and twenty minutes to do the full circuit. We walk fast though

Another good thing about the riverside walk and the springs along it is that there is no entrance fee
