Covering an area of 15,700 square meters, the square was designed in an irregular shape, not a traditional circular shape. Tigers sculpture is the symbol of Tiger Beach Ocean Park. The sculpted tigers are 35.5-meter-long, 6.5-meter-high and 6.5-meter-wide. Heading eastward, the six tigers are all different in shapes and sizes. They roar into the wind expressing their power as the King of Beasts. The Tigers Sculpture Square is the most beautiful and florid among many squares in Dalian.
