Other surrounding attractions also include the Lingyin Temple, Longjing Park, Song Heritage City, WuChao Mountain National Forest Park etc.
The layout of this project is one of the characteristics from large scale environment connecting to small scale open spaces. Many different scaled open spaces spread to the whole area which bring better permeability of the venues and link the whole system; such as the large scale of Wetland Park, waterways, activities square, middle scale of the landscape of streets and axis, green nodes, small scale of neighbourhood street, lanes and so on. They are increasing the interests of base space and overall value of the site. The site will provide various patterns for different activities, for the large festival events; for commercial active; to providing the rest and interaction sites for visitors.
