Wusongkou Paotaiwan Wetland Forest Park
The park sits beside the Yangtze River and Paotai (a fort barbette) Moutain. It’s named “Paotaiwan” because it is where a fort barbette was built in the Qing Dynasty. The park sits between Tanghou Road and Baoyang Road, and covers an area of 120 hectares with a 2250-meter river line. Blessed with a great location where the Huangpu River meets the Yangtze River, the park is the only national wetland park in Shanghai that integrates wetland protection, popular science education, recreation, entertainment and sightseeing.
