This noticeboard was erected to provide information to visitors and locals on Rewi Alley and his achievements in Shandan. It is a popular place usually full of people both day and night.
Young children can be seen on skates, trampolines and toy trains. Teenagers chat around the scenic lake, or view it from the overlooking pagodas. Elderly sing Chinese opera, play mahjong under each tree, morning and night line dancing groups will be exercising.
