When talking about the East District, most people have high-class office buildings, various Party and government organizations as well as cultural and sports venues in their minds. There are also a large number of entertainment and leisure places for consumers to visit on holidays, including large business circles, the Jinzhong Lake greenway, Zimaling Park, etc.

According to the Xiangshan County Records, when this county was established in the Southern Song Dynasty, its eastern part belonged to Renhou Township. After years of development, in 1988, several villages and communities in the original Huancheng District and suburbs were marked out to form the East District. 

Thirty-one years later, East District has evolved from an agricultural area to Zhongshan's "urban gateway". It closely combines rural revitalization with "Three Olds" transformation, urban renewal, social governance and rural culture, so as to allow more villagers enjoy the convenience of the city while retaining the rural flavor and local traditions.
