The repair work of Zhanyuan Garden began in 1958. The enlarged garden was the combination of both East Zhanyuan Garden and West Zhanyuan Garden. It kept the style of gardens of the Ming and the Qing (1644 - 1911) dynasties and at the same time it brought the essence of the art of modern garden building to it, forming a distinctive characteristic.[]  Editor:Lucky
