Wusong Paotaiwan Wetland Forestry Park is a scenic spot embodying a harmonious relationship between human and nature. The site is named Fort Bay after its original use as a key military base on the Huangpu River. The Qing Dynasty government built gun platforms there, and later it became the vital coast defence fort.
But nowadays, it is a place of natural charm, plus other attractions. The park includes the Yangtze River mudflats, manmade gardens, parkland and visitor attractions, and the ecological wetland boasts the Shanghai Yangtze River Estuary Science and Technology Museum, a children's amusement park, a commemorative square, a dock and a gym. The museum uses movies, pictures and texts to show how the estuary formed and transformed.
Spring is a great time to stroll along the winding wooden path in the park, and enjoy a panoramic view of birds flying among the water weeds. The walkway is also a perfect spot for enjoying the view during a beautiful sunset, or watching luxury cruise ships from the Wusongkou International Cruise Harbor as they pass by.
