Hengqin Erjing Bay Wetland Park
Phase I of Hengqin Erjing Bay Wetland Park opened in November, 2019 in an environment of mangrove forest, reeds, Chinese silvergrass, groves, hygrophytes, birds, and boardwalks.
Birds from the deep forest and disparate blooms in the Hygrophytes Zone of the 530,000-sq-m (131-acre) Phase I area on the north side of the Central Ditch further enhance the atmosphere.
The entire 3.32 million-sq-m (820-acre) park is on the east bank of the Modaomen River on both sides of the Central Ditch and stretching south to the east end of the upcoming Jinhai Avenue Bridge. It is a significant part of the Overall Plan of National Wetland Parks in Hengqin New Area (2017-26), which also includes Mangzhou Wetland Park. It is a mangrove protection base, ecological R&D education center, and demonstration zone for ecological and humanistic arts.

The park administration is committed to ecological restoration and headwater conservation as well as the integration of scientific research, education, leisure, and tourism functions.
