The Han River serves as the water source for 25 million citizens in the capital region. To protect the precious water source, the Ministry of Environment, by law, designates riparian buffer zones for 500m - 1km from the water edge along the upstream banks of the Han River. The Ministry also gives the zones special cares, including expropriating lands within the buffer and establishing greens along the banks (riparian eco-belts).

The riparian eco-belts have significant ecological values as habitat for many plants and animals and serve as a buffer that prevents dusts, particles and other pollutants on roads and agricultural lands from getting into the river.

The following are representative themed centers in the riparian eco-belts.
