English: The ancient (Song Dynasty) Five-Li-long (i.e. about 2.5 km long) Anping Bridge spans what used to be the estuary of the Shijing River. The estuary has now mostly silted up, so most of the bridge is over various small lakes and wetlands; most of the area north and south of it is a park of sorts. The bridge connects Anhai Town (Jinjiang City) and Shuitou Town (Nan'an City), both in Quanzhou Prefecture, Fujian. The access to the eastern end of the bridge is via a path that runs by Shuixin Zen Temple. East of the present-day main channel of the Shijing River one finds Shuixin Pavilion; somewhere between the main channel and the western end of the bridge a small shrine called Xinxing Gong (新兴宫, "New Prosperity Palace") is located.


For the park under construction (as of 2012) around the western (Shuitou) part of the bridge, see Category:Shuitou Town Ecological Wetland Park
