This 30,000-square-meter park opened its first-phase section last year at the junction of Beijing Road W. and Chengdu Road N.
Adjacent to many residential complexes and office buildings, the park offers a leisurely moment amid the city hustle. It features sculptures from 61 cities. A series of sculpture exhibitions will be exhibited before the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai.
The park is home to more than 300 trees including good examples of gingko, camphor, beech and hackberry.
Another 124 cherry trees of various species and 8,500 evergreen day lilies can also be found. The trees divide the park into 12 flower gardens, with about six to seven different colors planted and featured every season.
According to the Shanghai Greenery Administrative Bureau, the greenery in the park can absorb the heat expelled by 1,500 air-conditioners. The park will be completely finished by 2010.
