The Construction of the Main Part of Yangzhou Tongxinhe Park Has Just Finished

On September 10th, the main part of Qilihe Park has just opened. Another Park located in Southeast Yangzhou, Tongxinhe Park, with an area of 150,000 square meters (from Jiangdu South Road to Dujiang South Road), has been built as the largest organic of the three networks of “water network”, “green network” and “road network” in Southeast Yangzhou. It has also become a good place for nearby residents to keep fit and relax.

A few days ago, reporter saw that the park has been basically completed and the river is cleaned. Hydrophilic walkways on both sides have been built and afforestation is scattered. On the north bank, a colored footpath extends to the east-west and children’s amusement facilities are built along the line. The person in charge of the construction said that the park is located on both sides of Tongxinhe River at Tangwang Town, east to Jiangdu South Road and west to Dujiang South Road, with a total area of about 150,000 square meters, of which water area is about 30,000 square meters. The park relies on the present field with reasonable layout. It has multifunctional nodes in design and forms a waterfront ecological green corridor. In the landscape construction, it has badminton court, basketball court (exercise ground), hydrophilic platform, fitness runway, waterfront track, hydrophilic trestle and children’s recreational activity area. Citizens can follow the full length of 2.2 km fitness trail to leisure and exercise and shuttle in various functional areas.

It is learnt that Tongxinhe Park is also building a landscape while synchronizing river dredging and ecological revetment. Ecological revetment is a kind of artificial revetment with natural riverbank or “permeable” natural riverbank. It can fully guarantee the water exchange and regulation between riverbank and river water body and also has a certain role in flood control. In addition to the basic functions of embankment protection and flood control, ecological revetment can also play the role of replenishing, regulating water level and increasing water self-purification. When it is impossible to meet the requirement of land use for natural ecological revetment, the artificial revetment should be selected to meet the requirement of ecological environment construction and landscaping. Artificial revetment can be divided into three types: artificial natural revetment, artificial regular revetment and artificial compound revetment. These three types of revetments have been applied in Tongxinhe sports leisure park.

Artificial natural revetment is used for riverbanks with sufficient land conditions on both sides. It usually adopts natural grassland revetment and natural rock revetment. Planting vegetation along the river bank slope, adopting submerged plants, floating plants, overhead plants and trees, shrubs and grasses to consolidate the embankment and revetment. Or natural stones will be placed at the water-land junction and aquatic plants together to form a near-natural visual landscape effect. Artificial compound revetment is to set up aquatic plants transition zone at the water-land junction to achieve natural ecological landscape effect. The Tongxinhe Park after its completion has been built as the largest organic of the three networks of “water network”, “green network” and “road network” in Southeast Yangzhou.
