Pangshan Lake gets its name due to the Pangshan village on the shore of the lake and the name has been used to this day, and now, it is divided into south Pangshan village and east Pangshan village. It is recorded in the Notes of Wujiang in last years of Ming dynasty that “it is Lake Taihu flowing out from the west of upstream Pangshan Lake and it is the canal out from Ganquan Bridge. And it pours into the sea after flowing out of Baixiandianshan Lake from Jishuigang Harbor in the downstream.”There are Kuaifeng Pavilion, Gu Gong Temple, Xinyin Temple, Ren Zhongzhen’s Former Residence, historical site Tomb of Taolangxian, etc. on the shore of the lake originally. Duting Yuan dynasty, Ning Yu wrote an extempore poem of Travelling Xinyin Temple with Pang Fuyi.

And because of enclosing tideland for cultivation in successive dynasties, nowadays, it becomes garden.
