Most of the buildings can be characterized by “half”, like half bridge and half pavilion. There is a library building in the northeast side of the garden. The library building is unique in shape. It has two and a half stories. The garden is rich in flowers and tree. Although relatively small, the garden’s layout is quite compact and the buildings are delicate and smart. Poetry written by the famous poet Yu Yue from Qing Dynasty for the Garden of a Half is engraved on tablet in the main hall. There are many flowers and trees and a stone bridge in front of the hall. To the west of the hall there is a house in the shape of a boat.

    景点介绍
    全园布局以狭长水池为中心,周围环以旱船、四面厅,水榭,半亭等建筑,建筑多以“半”为特点,半桥、半亭、半榭等。园东北角建有藏书楼,造型别致,重檐高阁,外观二层半,小巧玲珑。园中花木繁盛,面积虽小,但布局紧凑,建筑小巧,环境雅致。主厅“半园草堂”为俞樾书榜,有联云“园虽得半,身有余闲便觉天空海阔;事不求全,心常知足自然气静神怡”。堂前多植花木,又有荷池石桥,波光粼粼,山石累累。堂西南有屋如船,名“不系舟”。堂东南临池有小屋,前荷后竹,名“君子居”。还有挹爽轩、双荫轩、还读书斋、安乐窝、风亭、月榭诸胜。俞樾《半园记》评此园“少少许胜人多多许”,“高高下下,备登临之胜;风亭月榭,极柏之华,视吴下名园无多让焉。”
