Song Gu Taiwan Wetland Forest Park with a total area of 53.46 hectares is
located in the eastern part of Baoshan District, with a backside of mountains
and rivers, the Yangtze River and Huangpu River in the east, the Battery Hill
in the west, the Tanghou Branch Road in the south, and the Baoyang Road in the
north. The coastline along the river is 1974.13 meters long. The southwest
corner of Wu Songkou is the famous Wu Songkou. During the Qing Dynasty, a naval
artillery platform was built on this terrain, so it was named Gun Taiwan. The
design of the park highlights the concept of ecological restoration and
cultural reconstruction. It not only enables the original beach wetland to be
effectively protected in the design, but also creates a fascinating wetland
landscape of 11 hectares by utilizing the combination of large and small
ecological islands along the river coast and the change of water level during
the ebb and flow of tides.
Introduction to Parks
Guntai Taiwan has always been an important coastal fortress. In the early 1960s, due to the need of war readiness, steel slag was backfilled to form Guntai Mountain, and a large area of steel slag was formed along the river. Utilizing the original Yangtze River beach wetland and adhering to the concept of "environmental renewal, ecological restoration and cultural reconstruction", Wu Songgun Taiwan Wetland Forest Park was built on the steel slag pile. It is a new mode of harmonious development between human and nature, economic construction and ecological protection. It has won the "China Habitat Environment Model Award". The Park covers about 60 hectares of land, 50 hectares of beach wetland and 2 kilometers of coastline. It is divided into five areas: forest leisure and sightseeing area, valley ecological corridor area, desert landscape area and waterfront wetland landscape area.
