Quite Enjoyed Our Visit
Feb 2019 • Solo
Guangzhou has a lot of really nice nature reserves that are away from the CBD. This was one such place. The place is well maintained and looks really nice. Lots of flowers and the water seemed quite clean as well. A nice place to venture out with the family, if you fancy being outdoors.

Nothing spectacular as other wetlands around the world.
Oct 2018 • Friends
I was not impressed with the site. Probably for Guangzhou standards that everything is concrete this is truly a wetland. If you do not have anything else to do, it will be a good relaxing place to take a walk or jog. Going around the lake is about 2.6 KM.

Beautiful natural ecological scenery, blooming flowers, great fresh air, & clear waters
Feb 2018 • Friends
This is a beautiful 1,100 hectare garden of greenery, flowers, birds, wetlands, and sweet essence of oxygen-rich fresh air. Despite the recent cold weather here and throughout the Guangzhou area, flowers are blooming. No wonder Guangzhou is called “The Garden City.”

“Haizhu Wetland Park” is also known as, Guangzhou Haizhu National Wetland Park (Haizhu Wetland), and "the green heart" of Guangzhou.

On my attached photos of the water, the clear waters are not evident due to the reflection of the adjacent greenery and other scenery.

This is a great place for bird-watching.

The heading on the TripAdvisor title for the reviews on “Haizhu Wetland Park” (aka, Guangzhou Haizhu National Wetland Park (Haizhu Wetland, and "the green heart" of Guangzhou)) is incorrectly spelled as “Haizu Wetland Park.” An “h” is missing.

The park is located in the southeast corner of Haizhu District. To get to the park, I took the Guangzhou Metro Line 3 to Datang Station.

This is HaiZhu Natioal Wetland Park
Aug 2017 • Couples
On our journeys to NanSha and the GuangDong Science Centre we’ve passed the entrance every time. As the day was hot and sunny we decided to grace it for the first time with our presence.

We me made our way from our apartment to the Tian He shopping mall. Then we took the 801 bus from its terminus to the north of the Tesla electric car showroom to the park. The park’s stop is LongTanCun PaiFang; it’s five stops (in GZ distances are measured in bus stops) and takes about 20 minutes. All bus journeys are 2 Yuan.
We then walked another 50 metres and we were at the impressive arch which marks the north and main entrance to the park. On the left is the ticket office building and on the right a building where there are scrupulously clean toilets and a very nice garden.

SWMBO reckoned the 20 Yuan entrance for herself was a rip-off as most parks are free or a couple of Yuan. Me? I waved my passport as usual and got a 100% discount. Age is more advantageous than beauty any day in China!

Many of maps and signs around the park have an English translation. Many of the trees, shrubs and plants have names labels in Latin which is mostly lost on me.
We strolled past the lake and then on into the park. There are nice wide flat meandering paths with plenty of signposts. We headed south with a diversion via the Friendship Forest with trees from around the world. We eventually arrived at the Flying Dragon Bridge next to which is little shop selling ice-cream, cold drinks etc., an oasis on a baking hot day.

We crossed the bridge and the bushes and shrubs gave way to fruit trees. This is work in progress. There are all kinds, bananas, lychee, mango, carambola, fig were ones I recognized. SWMBO kept pointing out others but I’d never heard of them!
We reached the Bridge of Holistic View. I must admit this concrete and steel bridge didn’t do anything for me other than make me look at the map and decide we should head back the 1150 metres to the north entrance rather than cross the bridge for the 3200 metres trek to the south entrance.

There are small ferry boats around the park’s waterways but they only run on Sundays, 20 to 30 Yuan according to sign. There are also electric buses on the paths but the guy at the entrance said they are for organized ‘tours’ and not for the independent traveller.

Anyway we strolled back to the north entrance and out of the park, turned left and walked to the bridge across the road. We crossed the bridge and headed back up the road a few metres to the bus stop for the 801 back to Tian He.

I’ll be honest this isn’t a park for kids and those looking for a bit of adventure or culture. Basically the bushes, shrubs and trees are there as another set of ‘lungs’ for GuangZhou. There are plenty of nice views and photo opportunities but not much else.

Wetland Park in city with easy access
Oct 2016 • Couples
Haizu Wetland has only been open a short time, but it is already a beautiful park to visit. It is on a main road with many buses going past, so access is easy. At the moment (until the end of December I think) admission is 20RMB but then it will go up to 50RMB (because it will have a bigger area open to the public we think).
The gates open at 9am and admission closes at 4pm with the park closing at 5pm. There are extensive paved walkways and lots of views over small rivers & larger lakes. When we went, there was a fun-run going on so the place was packed with people, but despite this it did not feel crowded, on a normal day my guess is that it would be very peaceful. We didn't see much in the way of birdlife, but as the weather cools it is reasonable to expect that migratory birds will find it. We will go back in winter to see.
All the facilities are very nice as everything is so new. It would be a lovely place to go for a picnic. We gathered that it would be possible to go around the biggest lake in a boat, but there wasn't much information in English. They have planted a huge number of trees and flowering plants and it feels more "natural" than other lake parks we have visited in the city. With its easy access, it is a lovely natural space in the city
