With the continuous improvement of people's quality of life, more and more people pay attention to the comfort and perception of the surrounding environment. The current urban waterfront landscape design still focuses more on the visual experience of formal beauty, ignoring the connection between the waterfront landscape and people, so designers need to strengthen the perception of the environment, focusing on the sensory experience of landscape design and people's enjoyment of the environment at a high level. Therefore, the integrated use of multiple senses of vision, hearing, touch, smell and taste will be a popular trend in waterfront landscape. This paper analyzes the importance of multi-sensory experience in the creation of waterfront landscape by reviewing the literature and sorting out the current research and problems of multi-sensory waterfront landscape.
