Landscape architecture is an evidence-based discipline. The landscape performance evaluation has made a quantitative analysis of the sustainable characteristics of landscape projects from three aspects of ecology, society and economic performance, in order to create sustainable and high-performance landscapes. Urban wetland park takes into account the objectives of wetland protection and social service, and need to meet certain functions of recreation and social education while creating a suitable biological habitat. Minghu National Wetland Park in Guizhou Province, China was selected as the case study area. Based on identified social and economic metrics through currently used evaluation methods of landscape performance, this paper reports on the social and economic value generated through the park, by first-hand data collected from observation, questionnaires and interviews. This research focused on the conflict and synergistic relationship between park wetland protection and social and economic performance, and the impact of urban wetland park on the urban environment and social relations.
