Long Bridge earned its name after Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai - regarded as the Chinese version of Romeo and Juliet - had taken a very long time to say farewell to one another on the bridge.

Long Bridge Stream Park is a wetland near Long Bridge. Even in the winter, the scenery can surprise visitors because of its pink flowers, golden weeds, crimson maples, green bushes, brown rocks and transparent water.

Inside the park visitors can see weeds blowing in the wind and birds on the meadow. Compared to other places around West Lake, the park receives fewer visitors.

The stream under Long Bridge was seriously polluted decades ago, but has slowly recovered after years of conservation efforts by the government.

The park also has a sewage treatment plant.

Earlier this year, the park won the Dubai International Award for Best Practices in Improving the Living Environment. It is one of 10 Chinese projects to have won the award.
