The park has been created in association with a research institute under the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and thus employs the most advanced agricultural technologies. A number of its cherries are prize-winning species in the Beijing region.

A festival featuring cherry-picking activities is underway at the park. A wide choice of cherries are on offer, including the famed Rainier Cherry which is the sweetest and juiciest and yellow in color. Other picks are the Red Lantern and Great Bigarrean varieties. Cherries of different genera are sectioned in separate areas so visitors can easily distinguish them.

The entrance fee for the park is 100 yuan for each person, which allows 500g of cherries to be picked. Extra money will be charged for more cherries.
