Shanghai Binjiang Forest Park is situated along Pudong's coast where the Huangpu River, Yangtze River,and East China Sea merge into one muddy wetland.
The city's largest suburban forest park, covering 3 million square meters, is in Gaoshatan, Gaoqiao Town, Pudong New Area. The park provides visitors with a wide open place for sightseeing, recreation and education.
The park tries to operate a perfect eco-system and highlight the wildness and the original flavor of nature. It provides a natural green land for visitors, while creating a suburban forest resort by making full use of its nurseries.
At present, there are more than 200,000 trees and thousands of square kilometers of plants, including an azalea garden, a magnolia garden and an area of aquatic plants.
A wandering wooden path was among the first facilities completed in the first phase of construction. Made from camphorwood, a bridge crosses the stream in the aquatic plants area which features long corridors and Chinese traditional-style pavilions.
An annual azalea exhibition opens each spring, with some shrubs more than 100 years old. The park has more than 6,000 outdoor azalea shrubs.
