Live Water Garden
活水公园
24Hours
Huaxing Rd.
华星路
Chengdu’s better known parks tend to be large, family affairs. And as much fun as paddling boats at People’s Park can be, you wouldn’t be the first seeking a more tranquil green space. The Living Water Garden, located near the amusement park off Fuqing Road, offers a quieter, more peaceful place slip away from the chaos, but with the same cultural mix of people-watching that makes Chinese parks so pleasurable.

Why the odd name? Built in 1998, the Living Water Garden is the first city ecology park in the world with a water theme. A stroll through its lush, picturesque pathways takes patrons through an artificial wetland and simulated forest community. Through its layout, the park demonstrates the natural process by which polluted water becomes clean; or, put alternatively: how “dead water” becomes “living.” Thoughtfully, it’s shaped like a fish, symbolizing the relationship of human beings to nature; that is, of a fish to water.

The park boasts a charming tea house and an incredibly scenic location along the river, with the amusement park’s arresting Ferris wheel across the water. But what truly makes Living Water Garden so charming is the spirited, tuneful locals that frequent it. Year round, the amphitheater hosts informal nightly performances of Chinese opera songs. So, after you’ve gotten your fix of soothing greenery, bring some snacks, a deck of cards and enjoy the simple pleasure of local seniors, singing ageless stories beside the cleaned-up Fuqing River.
