Chishi River is the largest river in Shenshan Cooperation Zone. It runs through Chishi Town, and into the Red Bay by Xiaomo Town. With numerous rivers gathering together, it has a rich biodiversity.

Flowing is a bold idea for Chishi Riverside that will transform the river valley into 8000 water gardens. A trail network flows between the gardens creating a world class attraction that will draw visitors and tourists to experience the Chishi river valley. From the mountains to the sea the gardens will provide cultural and recreational experiences while managing stormwater through flows.
