Waterfront park opens to public

A WATERFRONT park neighboring the World Expo site in downtown Luwan District opened to the public yesterday.

The green area is in the heart of a high-end riverside central business district which is expected to be completed in 2015.

"Luwan's southern area has a brand-new look," said Li Shun, deputy director of the Luwan District Construction and Transport Commission.

The 16.96 billion yuan (US$2.5 billion) project is being built on the former site of dilapidated buildings, old wharfs and factories, including the Jiangnan Shipyard.

Nanyuan, a park dating back about 90 years, is now eight times bigger along the Huangpu River.

The new green area adopts many modern technologies with solar energy, a rain irrigation system and a green parking lot.

Some remains of an old wharf and the former industrial sites have been restored as a tourist attraction.
