New park opens on National Day

THE first phase of Gucun Park, the city's biggest suburban wilderness area, will open to the public from National Day.

Located in Baoshan District, the 183.9-hectare park is designed to be the "green lung" of Shanghai, containing plenty of trees, shrubs and habitat for wild animals and birds, Shanghai Morning Post reported today.

Work on the second phase of construction will begin later this year, extending the park to 434.5 hectares – three times the size of Century Park in Pudong, the newspaper said.

A large lake and wetland area will be constructed alongside vegetable and fruit farms so residents can pick fresh produce.
