As Wuhan enters its hottest season, a large number of visitors are using East Lake as their summer resort, especially during evening time. Statistics show that over 20,000 visitors took to the East Lake Greenway at night recently, and the number exceeded 30,000 on the weekend, which is about the same as the tourist flow during the Labor Day holidays.

Many sports lovers gather around the lake, riding bikes, jogging, or walking. According to Liu Zhijun, a running enthusiast from the East Lake Running League, their league members usually gather on the East Lake Greenway to run together, and the number is even greater during the summer evenings.
