As the largest urban park in Xiamen, Haiwan Park opened to the public in 2006. Haiwan Park is located on the west side of Hubin Xilu and between the west Xiamen waters and Yundang Lake. 
 
Covering an area of 200,100 square meters, Haiwan Park enjoys a beautiful panoramic sea view. The view sweeps over the bay with Haicang Bridge on the right and Gulangyu island on the left.

There are a row of exotic bars, discos, cafés, restaurants, and pubs by the seaside which are always crowded with energetic young people and thrill seekers.
 
As a large comprehensive and multi-purposes park with tourism, leisure, recreation functions, booze and dances, Haiwan Park has become a shining 24hour city card of Xiamen.
