The Houtong Coal Mine Ecological Park is built along the riverside. Several key sites are the information desk, the Vision Hall, the Houtong Station, the Coal Preparation Plant, the Coal Mine Transport Bridge and the Commemorative House of Miners. Though Houtong’s mining industry is now history, the park goes into great detail about the mining operation and gives a gritty portrayal of how local miners lived and worked in the past, taking visitors back to the days when Houtong and coal mining were inseparable.
