Cherry fanciers offered a new sightseeing spot

CHERRY blossoms, which drew throngs of visitors to the city's Gucun Park last two spring seasons, can be viewed in a new park in Songjiang in the western suburbs next month.
The first phase of what is going to be the city's largest cherry garden is nearing completion and 6,000 cherry trees have been planted in 100,000 square meters of field on the side of Chenhua Road. Some trees will come into bloom next month.
Shanghai Kaisheng Gardening Company said the cherry garden will eventually cover 450,000 square meters of land, about the size of three People's Squares, when the project is finished by the end of 2014.
The company said three more gardens will be built along the road leading to the Chenshan Botanic Garden, each with flowering plants to represent one season: cherry for spring, promegranate for summer, osmanthus for autumn and plum for winter.
The company will also build bicycle lanes in the gardens for visitors to enjoy the scenery with ease.
