Xixi Wetland Park


  Xixi National Wetland Park, a rare secondary wetland in city, is located at the west of Hangzhou downtown and only 5 kilometers or less from the West Lake. For the abundant ecological resources, unaffected natural landscape and profound cultural accumulation here, it shared the name of “the Three Xi” of Hangzhou with the West Lake (Chinese name: Xihu) and Xiling (a seal club). It is the first and also the sole national wetland park integrating urban wetland, agricultural wetland and cultural wetland in one at home now.

  Three dykes and ten scenery spots: Fu (Blessing) Dyke: “Fu Dyke”, a north-south long causeway of 2,300 meters long and 7 meters wide, lies in the west side of Jiangcun Harbor and east side of Shentankou Harbor. It runs through the whole Xixi National Wetland Park and connects six bridges named with “Fu”, which are respectively named with Yuanfu Bridge, Yongfu Bridge, Qingfu Bridge, Xiangfu Bridge, Guangfu Bridge and Quanfu Bridge.
