ous aspects; we discovered that the level of environmental problems is down currently. Baiyang Wetland, which takes almost one-tenth of the area of Xiong’An, is located in the center of this area, and poses a serious pollution challenge brought about by both drought and floods, and upstream high-pollution plantations in the last century. Our intent is to improve the environment of Baiyang Wetland from a systematic and forward-thinking way. According to the government, one of the reasons to build a city upon a seriously polluted wetland is to make full use of “Force” mechanism to improve the water environment. In order to return capacity of water storage and self-purification to the original level, we have produced an artificial wetland system consisting of three parts: riverside buffer corridor; artificial semi-wetland pocket park; and prospective urban water channels and ditches. Each is supposed to include plant vegetation with strong purification ability — used to different water depth (hydrophyte) or humidity (xerophyte) according to their environmental conditions and functions. By balancing water level and quality of this area, residents are provided with more recreational public space and a quality walking and cycling environment.
