Xuanwu Lake Scenic Area is located at No. 1 Xuanwu Alley in Xuanwu District, which is 15.3 kilometres or 30-minute’s car ride from the Youth Olympic Village.
The lake is in downtown Nanjing and was formerly known as Sang Lake and Hou Lake. It is over 1,500 years old and is the largest imperial garden and lake, often praised as the “shining pearl of Jinling (another name of Nanjing)”. The scenic area occupies a total surface area of 5.02 square kilometres, among which 3.78 square kilometres are lake and 1.24 square kilometres are land. Five islands spread across the lake and are interconnected. The area will serve as the competition and training venue for Nanjing 2014 Triathlon, which will be an open venue during the Games.
