This arrangement creates large clusters of vegetation with varying heights, presenting a natural and picturesque landscape with diverse skyline views. Additionally, spanning from the Peony Bridge in the west to the Luoyang Bridge in the east, and from the southern dike of the Luo River to the Luoyi Road in the south, a thousand-acre national flower garden has been constructed. Based on the historical and cultural themes of the Sui and Tang dynasties, and centered around peony culture, this garden showcases the myriad forms of peonies amidst lush greenery, picturesque mountains, and pavilions, adding a beautiful landscape to the southern bank area of Luopu Park.

Through dredging and management efforts, four rubber dams were constructed at the Shangyang Palace, Tongle Park, Luoshen Garden, and Zhoushan between 2000 and 2004. These dams transformed the four-level water area, spanning 600 to 800 meters in width and covering an area of over 9 million square meters, into a beautiful scenery of clear blue waters under the sky. Not only do these water features enhance the aesthetic appeal of Luopu Park, but they also play a crucial role in regulating the climate of Luoyang. Additionally, they have significantly improved the flood control capacity of the Luo River, from a 20-year flood recurrence interval to a 100-year flood recurrence interval.
