Walking on the Ecological Road, people can smell the fragrance of flowers, hear birds singing, see pastoral scenery so as to enjoy the healthy life brought by slow life, slow leisure and slow sports.

Movies Playing in open-air theatre
Love is the eternal proposition of life! If the society is full of love, life will become better! Parents' love is selfless and doesn't expect anything for return. Lovers' love is boundlessly romantic. For revolutionaries, they hold that "bearing life, precious, and love is worth even more". Love is the spiritual treasure that we are always pursuing for, and the classical love stories provide us with enlightenment which will be widely spread for ever. Our obscure memories of youth will be jogged by movies. Every evening, one nostalgic movie about love will be played in Dashan Village so that citizens can show respect to the classic movies and find out what moved them before.
