brief introduction

Pearl Lake has clear water, elegant environment and beautiful natural scenery. According to the test, the atmospheric environmental quality of the Pearl Lake is the first level of the country, and the water quality is the second level of the country. The soil is clean, pollution-free and pollution-free. The lake is about 3,500 meters long in North and south, 500-700 meters wide in East and west, and 7-8 meters deep in the deepest part, comparable to the West Lake in Hangzhou. Situated on the west side of the lake, the 10,000 Mu orange garden and the Pearl Lake are the corners of each other and complement each other.

Mingzhu Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake in Chongming, Shanghai. It was originally a tributary of the South Branch of the Yangtze River. It was built by artificial dykes in the 1970s. There are now two gates to enter and leave the lake, so as to maintain its relationship with the Yangtze River. There are abundant fish resources in the lake. Luya's target fish species, such as Qixing perch and Qixing perch, are abundant in quantity, large in size and wild in nature. They are also famous for having a large number of super-eels that are said to eat ducks.

Pearl Lake makes the park more glorious with its unique "natural lakes, dense forests". Gardens and lakes complement each other. The water conservation forest built around the lake reaches 2,500 mu, in which more than 50 valuable trees, such as camphor, Magnolia and so on, have been planted, and a large number of wild flowers, weeds and natural vegetation have been deliberately preserved. In addition, the lush forest and dense river network around the lake have attracted 70 or 80 species of birds, such as silver gulls, herons and egrets, to live here. Mingzhu Lake is also a protective site for cormorants in Chongming. The forest paths around the lake are endless and quiet. Walking along the shade paths, insects singing and birds singing, butterflies dancing and birds flying around the lake make you taste the smell of the forest and ocean and feel the magic of nature. At the end of 2011, the Pearl Lake Xisha Wetland Scenic Area was approved by the National Tourism Administration as a national 4A-level tourist attraction.
