Waterwheel Garden 水车园

The waterwheel in Waterwheel Garden is the oldest known one and was invented by Duan Xu during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).  Duan Xu modeled this waterwheel after the irrigation machines found in Yunnan Province and invented a distinctive style that resembles a chariot wheel with a diameter that ranges from 10 to 20 meters (32.8 to 65.6 feet). 
In the Waterwheel Garden, tourists can experience crossing the river on a sheepskin raft, which is the most primitive way known of ferrying across the northwest region of the Yellow River.  A visit to the Waterwheel Garden will also provide an insight into the irrigation tools of ancient times.  
Waterwheel Garden is located on Binhe Middle Road (Binhe Zhong Road) to the west of the Yellow River Mother Sculpture.
