Located in the heart of Jinhua City in central Zhejiang province in eastern China, is a natural riparian wetland where the Wuyi River and Yiwu River converge to form Jinhua River. This 64-acres wetland called Yanweizhou, meaning “the sparrow tail”, had remained underdeveloped for years until it became the center for cultural activities featuring a concert hall and green spaces. The problem though was that these spaces were underutilized because of the location’s poor accessibility. In addition, most of the wetland was fragmented and damaged by sand quarrying. The existing wetland is covered with secondary growth dominated by poplar trees and Chinese Wingnut that provide habitat for native birds like egrets.

Yanweizhou is now the location of an environment-friendly park achieved through meandering vegetated terraces, curvilinear paths, a serpentine bridge, circular bio-swales and planting beds, and curved benches. The project has given the city a new identity and is now acclaimed as its most poetic landscape.
