Historical evolution

Ancient prototype

Four or five thousand years ago, Xixi's low-humid land was flooded by spring and summer floods in Tianmu Mountains, where it became a lake, and wetlands appeared when it was dry. Wetland is a phenomenon that occurs with its appearance, so it can be called embryonic stage. From the first year of Xiping in the Eastern Han Dynasty (172) when the South Lake was built, to the end of the Tang Dynasty and the Five Dynasties, there was about a thousand years, which was the formation period of Xixi Wetland.

Development of song and Yuan Dynasties

In the Song and Yuan Dynasties, in the first year of Duangong (988), the court officially built Xixi Town here. This is the beginning of the new stage of Xixi, which also shows that Xixi is an ancient town for thousands of years. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, social economy and culture on both sides of Xixi River made progress in many aspects. Agricultural and sideline industries such as fish raising, silkworm breeding, bamboo planting, bamboo shooting, tea, fruit and vegetable were developed, which became the characteristics of suburban agriculture.

Atrophy of Republic of China

After the Republic of China, wetlands were shrinking day by day. By the 1950s, with the establishment of many towns in Xixi area and the development of factories and enterprises, the scope of Xixi wetland was gradually reduced.

Development and transformation

In 2003, the Hangzhou Municipal Committee and the Municipal Government began to protect Xixi Wetland comprehensively.

In 2005, Xixi Wetland was built and officially opened, and approved by the State Forestry Administration as the first national wetland park.

In 2006, Xixi Wetland started the second phase of comprehensive protection project.

In 2007, the second phase of Xixi Wetland was limited to open gardens, and the third phase of Xixi Wetland Project started construction.

In September 2008, the third phase of Xixi Wetland Comprehensive Protection Project was limited.
