Park | First Glance at the Quiet and Elegant Zhengzhou Yellow River Beach Park

In late autumn, strolling along the bank of the Yellow River, you will see yellow leaves falling off branches like dancing butterflies. Picking up several pieces, a myriad of feelings may arise in your mind. Seen from afar, the previously roaring Yellow River is gentle. Reeds are swaying with the wind, very refreshing and inspiring. At this moment, you would like to recite several poems to express your feeling.

Here is Zhengzhou Yellow River Beach Park under construction.

It is very quiet.

Located in the east of the Yellow River Culture Park in Huiji District, Zhengzhou Yellow River Beach Park is an important project to implement the construction requirements for the starting area of the core demonstration area of the strategy for ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin and the urban function orientation - "quiet northern area". This project starts from Jiangshan Road in the west, reaches the Yellow River Bridge in the east, connects the provincial highway 312 in the south, and stretches to the Yellow River in the north. Covering a planning area of 44 square kilometers, it consists of 14 function areas, including the Yellow River Wetland Restoration Area, Wetland Area, and the Yellow River Eco-Agriculture Demonstration Area.

According to the requirements of the Communist Party of China Huiji District Committee to give priority to the slow traffic system, promote the node construction, connect the water systems, and implement by zone, the current focus is put on three sightseeing sites, respectively Nanguotou, Marine Square, and Ferry Square, and 22 colored slow-traffic paths which spin 61 kilometers, as well as the Wetland Area that displays the natural view of the Yellow River in the Yellow River Bench Park.

With a length of 2,244 meters, the Nanguotou Scenic Lookout is part of the barrage of the former Huayuankou Project which was removed in 1963. In 1964, this section was wrapped for protection. As it is in the south of the river, so it got the name. This project is near the river.

Covering a total area of 3 hectares, this scenic lookout is 170 meters long from south to north and 110 meters wide from east to west. In the west, a platform is designed for tourists to appreciate the grand spectacle of the Yellow River. In the middle, there is the Huiji Yellow River Lounge for citizens to drink tea, enjoy the scenery, and take a rest. On the east side stands the Huiji Theater where there is a multi-functional theater space in which tourists can enjoy a gig, performance, lecture, and leisure time.

In the planning and construction of Yellow River Beach Park, natural ecological protection is highlighted. In view of the ecological characteristics of the Yellow River beach, the planning and construction have insisted on the differentiated treatment of the shoal, the middle beach, and the high beach, and carried out the high-standard ecological restoration to boost the green development. Meanwhile, the vehicle system, slow traffic system, and pedestrian system have been coordinated in a scientific manner to optimize the traffic structure; service posts have been built as an element of the slow traffic system to satisfy citizens' demand for recreation and rest.

According to information, approximately RMB 1.35 billion has been invested recently to the Yellow River Beach Park, through which the framework of the slow traffic system, the ecological restoration of the core area of the Yellow River beach under the protection, the Zhengzhou Yellow River National Wetland Park, and the Yellow River Demonstration Area of Ecological Agriculture will be constructed as emphases. At present, 22 roads of the slow traffic system, spanning 61 kilometers, have been basically built; 3 nodes, namely the Nanguotou Scenic Lookout, Marine Scenic Lookout, and Huiwu Floating Bridge Scenic Lookout (Phase I) have been basically constructed. After the construction is completed, the Yellow River Beach Park will become the "backyard garden" of citizens of Zhengzhou and an internet-famous site where idyllic scenery and natural landscape are available, and multiple functions such as recreational sightseeing, agricultural picking, ramble in the woods, and child-parent survey & study can be fulfilled.

The Yellow River Beach Park represents an important project to implement the construction requirements for the starting area of the core demonstration area of the strategy for ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin and the urban function orientation - "quiet northern area". This project starts from Jiangshan Road in the west, reaches the Yellow River Bridge in the east, connects the provincial highway 312 in the south, and stretches to the Huiji section of the Yellow River in the north. Covering an area of about 44 square kilometers, the Yellow River Beach Park is the core area under ecological protection of the Yellow River in Zhengzhou, which is an important window to showcase the natural scenery, ecological protection, cultural characteristics, and high-quality development achievements of the Yellow River.
