Abstract: In the process of the rapid development of urban construction and the expansion of urban scale, there are many problems, such as the lack of connections between urban spaces, the fragmentation of the green space system and the weak construction of the slow system. The construction of an ecological corridor improves the poor connectivity of urban space, provides a good slow system for the public and forms the urban green space network. Ecological corridor plays a positive and comprehensive benefit in urban improvement. In the 1990s, the greenway construction swept all over the world. In recent years, the construction of the green road has become popular in China. The planning and design of the green corridor will be carried out nationwide. Taking the Changhe River area of Beijing as an example, this paper Adopts a question-oriented approach to research. Through literature review, field investigation and induction deduction, this paper analyzes the history of the Changhe River and the urbanization process along the Changhe River´╝îthen Analyze the situation of the site from land, transportation, construction, space, and other aspects. After that, it summed up the river area waterfront green corridor planning and design advantages and disadvantages. Based on the concept of sharing, sharing participants, sharing the features and advantages of this, illustrate the feasibility and importance of sharing ideas in the planning and design of the green corridor. Based on the idea of sharing, this paper proposed a design strategy of waterfront green corridor from point, line, and unit. 1. Sharing Points: Add bicycle and motor vehicle rental point. Carry out detailed planning and design for traffic hub and overpass. Build suitable slow traffic transfer. 2. Sharing Line: Planning for the walking system, waterfront trail, waterfront revetment, the linear space for fitness near the residential area, bicycle commuter system, water commuter system. Construction of a perfect slow line system and linear public space. 3. Sharing Unit: Propose different sharing strategies for the zoo, shantytown, parking lot and sports facilities. Create a river micro park. While retaining the demand for the collection and activities, the green of the reconstruction square and the urban green corridor are connected. Finally, the urban complex ecosystem which is human-dominated, economic system, social system, and natural system coordinated developed is formed. This paper hopes to use the Changhe River area as the breakthrough point to discuss the establishment of urban open space and the formation of green space network and provides some ideas and methods for the planning and design of the urban waterfront corridor in the future.
