No park existed here just 12 years ago. It was formed when a small lake between two mountains was filled with sludge from West Lake during large-scale dredging there in 1999.
As time passed, the lake dried and seeds in the West Lake sludge began to sprout. Soon, a park of marshland and greenery took shape, boasting some 200 species of plants and 90 kinds of birds.
Aquatic plants provide color all year round, with numerous types of reed and waterweed.
Decorating the path, cosmos - a symbol of happiness in China - provide splashes of pink, purple and white. Look closely among the blooms and you will find bees, butterflies and even hummingbirds, fluttering, dancing and gathering honey.
