Located next to Lotus Pond， north of the scenic area management office. This park was once used as a large irrigation reservoir. The park was originally zoned as a standard park， which would cover 10 hectares of land. However， after much petitioning from Kaohsiung City Government's Public Works Bureau it has been adopted by Wetlands Taiwan. This is now the location of the "The return of the Pheasant-Tailed Jacana Project". Water was released into the area， to create a man-made wetland environment. Now many wetland creatures inhabit the area such as aquatic insects， mollusks， fish and reptiles. This natural regeneration attracted the return of birds to the Chouchai Wetland Park. Now many amphibians and over 90 types of birds search for food here， making it a wetland park with a rich and diverse ecology. The atmosphere at "Chouchai Wetlands" allows people to leave the city behind and enjoy the wildlife and a beautiful natural environment.In recent years there has been greater attention paid to wetland parks and their ecologies. Besides the Chouchai Wetlands， southern Taiwan also boasts the Yuanchonggang Mangroves， the Ecological Pool at the Museum of Fine Art， Niaosong Wetland Park， Gaoping River， Old Iron Bridge Wetland Park， Tainan's Cigu Wetlands and Chiayi's Natural Ecological Wetland Park.
