The Tide Wonders International Sculpture Park in Haining of Zhejiang province, located along the Qiantang River, has been open to the public since construction, at the park, completed in September last year.

A total of 37 sculptures, scattered across the park, were created by artists from China and abroad, with each piece reflecting the creator's understanding of the tide culture, or even oriental culture, in Haining. Of the 37 sculptures, 35 were selected from the Tide Wonders 2016 The First International Sculpture Exhibition, with the remaining two created by US sculpture artist Bruce Beasley and Chinese artist Shen Wenqiang.

At the park, visitors can view the sculptures while also watching the well-known Qiantang tide.
