City adds 200km of greenway

Shanghai will have another 200 kilometers of greenway by the end of this year, bringing the total length in the city to more than 1,000km, greenery authorities said yesterday.

The key projects this year are the Suzhou Creek green­way and the Puxi section of the Outer Ring Road greenway, the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau said.

Greenways are paths meant for leisure and exercise amidst trees, flowers, water and other natural resources. These include paths in gardens and forests, as well as along rivers and roads.

By the end of last year, the city had 881km of greenway.

Shanghai will add another 50 urban parks by the end of this year, bringing the total to 400.

It has 195 pocket parks, grow­ing to more than 200 by the end of 2020, with pocket parks fea­turing colorful autumn foliage on Hengshan Road and Gao’an Road on the agenda.

“We hope to make Shanghai a ‘city in parks,’ and residents will see flowers when they open windows and greenway when they walk out,” said Deng Jian­ping, director of the bureau.
