The Wetland Park, a landmark project for the Chanba Ecological Zone to create a national ecological civilization pilot zone, has received extensive attention from mainstream media and all sectors of society. As an urban nature reserve, natural habitat for wetland animals and plants, and a free paradise for birds, the wetland park is an ideal place to experience the city's "quiet culture" and a wonderful name card for Xi'an.
With numerous islands, water systems and plants, the wetland park provides a natural wetland ecosystem suitable for animals and plants. The wetland park has more than 110 islands in different size and the water source comes from the natural river course of the Bahe River.
