A more than 60 hectares farm land is requiring a park of ecological protection, ecological education and cultural recreation. The project focuses on the safety of the river and satisfies the flood control requirements. It is required to further satisfy the natural self-sufficiency, keep the river shape, reduce the destruction of the natural environment, reflect the sustainability of the river ecology, and improve the biological reproduction of the native species. Therefore, rebuild wetland from existing farm land is the solution here aside Alder River. It is aimed to create a regional natural and cultural landscape, to provide science education platform, also to promote the sustainable development of urban and rural environment.
Beside the White town adjacent to Chongqing Road, a series of attractions in this tourist routes bring a certain number of cultural highlights, but the most popular traditional natural settlement form - Lin Pan - is under demolition. This is an opportunities to offer such traditional landscape/architecture experience in park as gathering/service space for people’s recall of rural traditions. While other traditional historical and cultural activities will be provided as well.
The design of a wetland park focus into the following three aspects: the first is to regard it as a wetland generator, to restore and shape the wetland habitat; the second, as a water source filter, for cleaning water in the wetland park in a natural or artificial way of filtration and purification; thirdly, as a urban infrastructure. “Green belt” form can be used as a demonstration to the surroundings, as a recreational infrastructure, thus weakening the traditional concept of an isolated park. Finally this wetland park will be enlarged and extended with the surrounding cities and turned to become a city-scale greening system.
