Vi Xuyen Lake after ups and downs
Vi Xuyen Lake is the vestiges of the ancient imperial river -Vi Hoang River – flowing through the heart of the city. Since 1913, after the new Dao River was opened to replace the functions of transport and circulation, the French took the land in Hau Dong to fill the section of the Vi Hoang River in Hang Nau, Hang Tam, Hang Song streets.
In 1916 and 1917, the section of Ben Ngu River was backfill, and in 1920, the section of river was filled and become Nguyen Khuyen School now. Gradually, the river was completely destroyed.
Later, a part of Khoai Dong village was excavated into a lake from the 1930s. But the work was abandoned during The war against the French (1946-1954). Until 1956, the lake continued to be built into Vi Xuyen Park as it is today.
