Zhouzhaung Carton King Creativity Park, unlike what the name suggested, is not really a "park". Instead, the Carton King Creativity Park is a nice little garden decorated with things made by corrugated paper. Inside the garden, there is a themed restaurant, cafe and souvenir shop for the patrons.

Paper is durable and environmentally friendly. Zhouzhuang Carton King Creativity Park is the first branch of Taiwan Carton King on the Chinese mainland. In Taiwan, this famous enterprise already has 13 theme parks and stores. Its paper designs have been highly praised in a world gift and toy exhibition.

There are several things visitors shouldn’t miss while visiting the water town, that is, Shen House, a sculling boat, Wansan pork shank and granny tea.

Here the Carton King has created a world out of paper. In the paper-made Shen House stands a large paper carving of Shen Wansan, a legendary businessman during the early Ming Dynasty and was the first ever millionaire to live in Jiangnan, the region around the south Yangtze River delta encompassing cities such as Nanjing, Shanghai and Hangzhou.

"Memory of Hometown", which depicted the Twin Bridges, by notable painter, Chen Yifei, has been transformed into a 3D paper carving in the park.

In a paper-made zoo, children could play with lions, tigers, giraffes, boars and monkeys.

Delicious Wansan pork shanks have been put inside the boxes in shape of a smiling pig face.

All the tables and chairs in the themed restaurant are made of paper. Through the paper curtain, visitors are also able to see several world famous architectures in the 3D paper carving.
