The park's ecosystem construction started in April and included ecological tree islands, strolling paths, gardens and vegetation planting.
Yawei Stream, with a total length of 2.3 km, used to have black and odorous water as a large amount of unprocessed sanitary sewage was poured in.
Haikou began to completely renovate the water environment in the second half of 2016 and transformed the area into a wetland park with clean water and fresh air.
As the stream has a salinity rate up to 25 percent, about 30,000 mangroves have been chosen to be planted there.
