Wuhan, capital of Hubei Province in central China, boasts a large freshwater lake that has become an ecological icon of the city. Years ago, wastewater was discharged into Donghu Lake, or East Lake, resulting in severe environmental degradation. Then efforts were made to clean up the water and build a greenway. The once stinking lake has been transformed into a popular tourist attraction and a leisure destination for locals. The over 100-km greenway connects islands, parks and ponds. Trees have been planted by the lake and over 100 species live in the area, including fishes, birds and reptiles.

Opened to the public in 2016, the greenway is car-free, accessible only to walkers and cyclists. Addressing environmental problems…
