Sports park to highlight ecological corridor

A sports park at the intersection of Tianshan Road W. and Suining Road is set to be completed.







As one of the six theme parks in the west of Changning, Hongqiao Sports Park is designed to have multiple functions, such as ecological protection, exercise and leisure, culture and entertainment, public service and disaster prevention and refuge.




The park has both spaces above the ground and underground. The green space above the ground is around 130,000 square meters and features trees with purple flowers, like wisteria, bauhinia and lagerstroemia.




A two-story building is for park management.







Beneath the ground is a sports center, a natatorium, shops and a sunken courtyard.








The sports center has a total space of around 8,100 square meters, which includes a basketball/badminton court, table tennis room, squash room, indoor rock climbing room, golf practice room, dance room and a sports store.







The park also has an underground parking lot with 215 spaces. An award-winning project, the park’s pipeline layout and routing are largely optimized for energy saving and easy operation.








Not far away, a 30,000-square-meter park between Xinjinggang River and Hami Road is now open, welcoming visitors to experience traditional garden views and modern public services.







The Zhongxinjing Park is a complex for recreation and sports activities and features a museum and an underground parking.





Buildings in the park are mostly Huizhou-style, one of the traditional Chinese architecture styles that prevailed in the historical Huizhou Prefecture of Anhui Province.







On the opposite of the Xinjinggang River is the century-old Fuyuan Temple, which is the cultural axis of the park. To the east of the axis are a plaza and the Huizhou-style buildings.







To the west are vertical green spaces and beneath the ground are an exhibition hall, a gallery, a lounge and a parking lot.








Shaped like a lotus flower, a cultural exhibition center stands in the middle of the “Ginkgo Avenue,” which is on the opposite of the Xinjinggang River toward Fuyuan Temple, together with a lotus pool in the northeast of the park to enhance its cultural ties with the temple.







Both the two parks are among the six theme parks that will be connected through a non-motorized traffic system to jointly form an ecological corridor to provide the public with great riverside views.




The other four are Linkong No.1 and No. 2 parks, the green space along Suzhou Creek and Xinjing Park.
