Forest Park's West Entry is a portal into a major green infrastructure resource for Kunshan West and an expansive open space for its residents to leisurely enjoy. The entry activates an important neighborhood connection with amenities that include a visitor center, water taxi and boat dock stations, and a light refreshment area for visitors to use before continuing on the park's extensive trails through wetlands and forests. Meandering boardwalks allow visitors to explore vibrant and lush aquatic planting in a serene environment that is locally accessible and simultaneously improves the overall water quality for the wider West Kunshan district.
