The 300 hectare city park in Shenyang stretches along both sides of the Baisha River. The linear park is made up of a series of spaces and gardens with room for a variety of uses, defined by a structure of trees and shrubs. These spaces are connected by a flowing network of pedestrian and bicycle paths which offer changing views of the river.
Phase 2 consists of 130 hectares and differs from phase 1 because if its central lake which acts as the heart of the park, with themed gardens all around. Plants play an important role throughout the park and in the gardens. Flower color and plant textures are used to provide seasonal interest and highlight certain areas. Each garden approaches the challenging height differences in its own way, creating a dynamic character along the entire riverfront. The park becomes more natural and the activities are less intense where the Baisha River meets the powerful Hun River.
The various gardens ensure that there is something to do all year long in the park, setting it apart from other parks in Shenyang. The landscape design along the banks of the Baisha River invites the residents of Shenyang to meet, relax and recreate.
