Tongnan Dafosi Wetland Park is located on the banks of Fu River in the central area of Tongnan District in Chongqing. It is an oasis in the high-density urban area, which represent the landscape of Tongnan District, and adjacent to Dafo Temple, a national AAAA level scenic spot.
Aiming to create a “riverside beach--the return of the Fu River wetland”, the design team preserves the wetland of the river as much as possible, compresses the boundary of the city balcony, and sets up a walking corridor, thus providing visitors with a rich and sensory experience.
Taking the vision of “take a boat ride down the river alongside the flowery dyke, thousands of mountains emerge in the haze”, the team activates two key cultural elements of Tongnan: the long-established shipping culture, and the Buddhist culture based on the Dafo Temple, and creates a city riverside wetland landscape park with local cultural character.
