Forest Park ecological wetland: case study

10 Oct 2018
Description

Urban parklands can be upgraded to be multifunctional water treatment and flood management assets.

Built in 2001, the Kunshan Forest Park is a National Urban Wetland Park covering an area of 166 hectares in the northwest of Kunshan city in Jiangsu province, China. The Forest Park boasts an array of eco-tourism resources and is characterised by parklands, forests and lakes.

The ecological wetland project aims to improve the water quality of five large park lakes by transforming traditional green space into multifunctional green infrastructure which provides water treatment, water recirculation, and extra flooding storage within a versatile landscape. In addition, an ecological restoration zone is planned to protect and remediate the local aquatic and terrestrial habitat, restoring the ecological values and encouraging flora and fauna back to the area.
